Of Birds and Boundaries

HD. B&W. STEREO. 23 MINS.

OF BIRDS AND BOUNDARIES is an animated documentary short that tells the story of ‘Marty’* a 25-year-old Hasidic family man in Brooklyn, who, yearning for freedom from his community, escapes into his own fantasies, and onto Craigslist, where he meets Annie, a secular filmmaker seeking a Hasidic researcher for her next project. What follows is the development of an unexpected relationship between two unlikely collaborators.

*At 'Marty's' request, his name has been fabricated and his voice altered to protect his identity.
This film was created as a filmmaker in residence at the UnionDocs Filmmakers Collaborative for nonfiction with Laura Mayer and Matthew Yoka.
