I got in a little bit of trouble the other day. We have been working closely with Brooklyn filmmaker Jason Hutt lately, making some awesome new videos for MJL. You will be able to see them in the next few weeks, but just trust me now that they are great.
When working with Jason on Friday, he made a casual reference to his film, Orthodox Stance, a documentary about the Orthodox Jewish boxer, Dmitry Salita. I gave him a blank stare. For all the amount of time I’ve spent working with Jason, I secretly had never seen his movie.
But Jason told me to have no fear. Orthodox Stance is available on Hulu! The internet is a wonderful place I guess.
This got me to look a bit further into Hulu. Is Orthodox Stance alone as the only Jewish source on Hulu? The answer is no! You can also watch the controversial Trembling Before G-d, the documentary about homosexuality in Judaism. And I’m sure if I searched a little harder, I could find some other amazing Jewish media online.
All this time, I thought Hulu was just a venue for me to catch up on Modern Family. But all along, I could have been watching great Jewish documentaries that are not as easily accessible as your huge Hollywood films.
Check out the (awesome) Orthodox Stance:
