Definitly not pro. Why dont you watch it and decide for yourself?

There's been talk of victim blaming recently, how about this, from the movie's producer:

Don't know how to make that happen, but if you really want to watch it pm me and I'll get you access.
There's a lot to say about the movie, a lot more than just pro or against torah. I'm still processing and don't have a fully formulated judgment.
Though I will say its heart wrenching and painful, on several fronts.

Outrageous.
Fwiw, She did appoligize and clarify that she meant since chassidim dont change their dress they were more easily identified as jews and couldn't hide.

That's a whole new level of cluelessness. The Nazis didn't search for Jews by their Payos.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

And she finished the apology saying she applauds anyone who proudly lives their truth, when her movie makes no attempt to even slightly show Chassidim living their truth

I just re-listend, her comments are more clueless than I original thought.  She should really get a clue about the subjects featured in a film she's producing.

Click through to the twitter thread to see one of the 'stars' attempting to back her up.

It's useful to know if the filmmaker has an anti-chassidic bias because there are (i assume) claims made in the film which are supported only by testimony, the accuracy of which require the viewer's trust. From that clip it appears she does have such a bias.
If you don't care why would you comment?
