Arranged_VideoCoverThis film centers on two young women — one an Orthodox Jew, the other a devout Muslim — who meet and become friends as first-year teachers at a public school in Brooklyn. Over the course of the year they learn that they share much in common, not least of which is that they are both going through arranged marriages.

The film premiered at the 2007 South by Southwest Film Festival, won top prizes at The Berkshire International Film Festival, The Brooklyn International Film Festival, The Washington Jewish Film Festival, The Palm Beach Jewish Film Festival, and The Skip City International D-Cinema Film Festival in Japan.

“A drama about the friendship between an Orthodox Jewish woman and a Muslim woman with two radiant performances and an important message about respecting religious diversity.” – Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
