City of Joel

Directed by Jesse Sweet
United States, 2018


The City of Joel, a Hasidic enclave in Monroe, NY, numbers 22,000. The sect needs to expand, but it faces fierce opposition from other Monroe residents. Director Jesse Sweet captures a hornet’s nest of conflicting opinions and attitudes that couldn’t be timelier.
