Following Boruch (Work-in-progress trailer), from Paula Eiselt.


“After battling bipolar disorder, alcoholism, and drug addiction for over thirty years, forty-seven-year-old Boruch Hoffman, a Hasidic Jew from Brooklyn, is sober and eager to live the life he never had. FOLLOWING BORUCH is a feature length documentary that follows Boruch over one year as he strives to find the job and wife he always prayed for but was never able to fulfill.” (From the web site).


Boruch Hoffman, the charismatic hero of “Following Boruch,” has been a much-loved dinner guest in our home on numerous occasions over the past several years. He possesses a “bigger-than-life” personality, a great sense of humor, and a sharp intellect, all of which have helped him on his quest for spirituality and emotional well-being. We are so delighted that he is sharing his personal story on film and a bit in awe of his unflinching courage.


One of the things that will make this film (it is currently in post-production) so unique, is that it is being made by the subject’s neice, director and producer, Paula Eiselt (along with executive producer, award-winning filmmaker, Marco Williams). Also, it gives viewers an eye into the intricate support network of the Orthodox and Hasidic Jewish communities in Brooklyn.
