TIFF 2011: The Hasids Are Coming In The Trailer For SORRY, RABBI

, Founder and Editor
Mark Slutsky's new short film Sorry, Rabbi will soon premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival and the stills featured on Twitch a couple weeks back have now been followed by a poster - courtesy of artist Matt Forsythe - and a trailer, embedded below.

Sorry, Rabbi is a Montreal-set comedy about the cultural clash that comes to the fore when young Mile-Ender Josh (Jacob Tierney) butts heads with a group of Hasids living next door. Surrounded by angry Hasidic men, Josh is astonished to find himself accused of anti-Semitic violence. He's Jewish himself, if non-practicing - what would his mother think? With a bleeding Hasid, an exasperated Rabbi and Josh's newly broken heart jostling for space in a crowded office, who's telling the truth?

Though the film itself is actually a fairly lighthearted poke at truth and perspective Slutsky has cut a hilariously serious trailer for the film. Take a look. Jessica Pare and Jacob Tierney star.
