Emotionally powerful and thought-provoking doc on how Jewish values can be instrumental in healing our planet and selves.
“Produced by Emmy-Award-winning producer, director, writer, and cinematographer Lionel Friedberg, A SACRED DUTY will take its place alongside Al Gore’s AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH and Leonardo di Caprio’s THE ELEVENTH HOUR as another powerful expose of the dangers of global warming. However, it goes beyond the latter two films, by showing how religious responses can make a major difference and why a shift toward plant-based diets is an essential part of efforts to reduce global climate change and other environmental threats.”
Warning: Extremely graphic accounts of animal abuse and slaughter toward the end of this film. The not so subtle allusion to the holocaust should have been avoided, but the film is worth seeing and thinking about.
