World Premiere Haifa Int’l Film Festival
The Holy Gathering documents the fascinating journey of three men brought up completely secular on Kibbutzim and their search for a more spiritually fulfilling life. The world from which they came, the agricultural collective communities of Israeli Kibbutzim, created a void in these men. They sought out spirituality by exploring the Eastern methods, only to end up discovering the Jewish religion instead. Filmed over the course of six years, we see the ups and downs of these mens’ lives as they struggle to integrate religion into their way of life while being pulled by family and society to do the opposite.
