ONE OF US, FROM THE OSCAR-NOMINATED FILMMAKERS OF JESUS CAMP, PREMIERES AT THE 2017 TORONTO INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

The Film Will Launch Globally on Netflix this Fall

LOS ANGELES, CA (August 1, 2017) - Netflix announced today its original documentary One of Us, a film by Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady (Jesus Camp, Detropia). The film will have its world premiere at this year's Toronto International Film Festival and will launch in all 190 countries that Netflix is available later this Fall.

One of Us explores the opaque world of Hasidic Judaism through a cadre of fascinating characters. Through unique and intimate access over the span of three years, acclaimed observational filmmakers Ewing and Grady delve into the lives of three brave individuals who have recently made the decision to leave the insular ultra-orthodox community at the expense of all else, including relationships with their family members and - in one case - their personal safety. With a sensitive and compassionate eye, One of Us chronicles the achingly cinematic journey of people in search of a personal freedom that comes only at a very high cost.

"We are so thrilled to work with these brilliant filmmakers. Heidi and Rachel are renowned for their bold choice of subjects and their highly cinematic, character-driven approach to storytelling." said Lisa Nishimura, Netflix VP of Original Documentaries. "From early on in production, we saw some parallels to Jesus Camp, their Oscar-nominated documentary about an extremist evangelical community -- and knew they would address such subject matter with integrity and empathy."

"We have always been drawn to stories that put the nature/nurture debate into stark relief. Are some of us just born with an unshakable need to question the status quo, despite the consequences?" said filmmakers Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady. "The three brave people we chronicle in One of Us buck the exacting rules of their ultra-orthodox community to experience the world for the first time as true individuals. Their journey is a profoundly human one that took us by surprise. We hope audiences are as affected by this story as we are."

One of Us is a Loki Films production. The film is produced by Rachel Grady and Heidi Ewing. Regina Skully, Jason Spingarn-Koff, Benjamin Cotner and Lisa Nishimura serve as Executive Producers.
