SABBATH QUEEN, a feature documentary filmed over 20 years, follows Rabbi Amichai Lau-Lavie’s epic journey as the dynastic heir of 39 generations of Orthodox rabbis including the Chief Rabbis of Israel.

He is torn between rejecting and embracing his traditional destiny and becomes a drag-queen rebel, a queer bio-dad, and the founder of Lab/Shul. SABBATH QUEEN joins Amichai on a lifelong quest to creatively and radically reinvent religion and ritual, champion interfaith love and challenge patriarchy and right-wing orthodoxies. The film interrogates what Jewish survival means in a difficult rapidly changing 21st century.
