Thrilling short The Chosen One screens at the 2023 New Jersey International Film Festival

Elazar Fine’s The Chosen One is cool, thrilling to watch, and takes a daring stance on religion as it unpacks religious trauma and the guilt one feels when running away from faith. I was captivated from just the first two minutes: through the reflection of his mirror where a Hebrew prayer is engraved, we see a young Orthodox Jewish man, Eli, weeping on the floor behind his bed, electric razor in hand. To fast-paced violin and cello music, Eli, with his back turned to us, shaves his long beard and long curly sideburns (or payot, in Hebrew), strong symbols of Hasidic Jewish faith, while the other members of his Orthodox family calmly read books, pray, and clean in common rooms. At last, a family member enters Eli’s bedroom and lets out a gasp.
