Pursued (Radoof)


A compelling story of a man coming to terms with the sexual abuse that he experienced as a student in a religious school..

A powerfully topical tale, Pursued is a film made by its protagonist, Menachem Roth. As an adolescent attending an all-male, haredi* yeshiva*, Roth was the helpless and innocent victim of sexual abuse. Twenty years after his harrowing ordeal, he makes the decision to confront his abuser, and to document their disturbing relationship on camera. As harrowing as Roth’s story is, Pursued is a brave search for justice and a means of coming to terms with a traumatic childhood. Disturbing, thought-provoking and poetic.
