A Tree of Life

Dir. Trish Adlesic | 80 min
Documentary USA 2021

In 2018, a white supremacist opened fire at Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life Synagogue in the deadliest antisemitic attack in American history. The survivors recount the harrowing experience and detail how their lives have fundamentally changed. Academy Award nominated, Emmy-winning director Trish Adlesic confronts the “moral decay of humanity” and takes a larger look at the hate-based crisis stemming from the political climate to pose the ultimate question: what kind of nation does America want to be?
