Israel 2022, 70 min, Hebrew, English subtitles

This is the story of The Midrashia, the mothership of religious Zionism in Israel, “the Mother of all high school yeshivas”. It’s a story about an educational start-up, founded before the establishment of the State, having produced thousands of quality students that placed themselves in all the centers of power in Israel. This is a story about a school that in a complicated and surprising process, changed it’s manner, and from an elitist and luxurious school that educated successful and dedicated students – became an anarchist and wild place. This is a chilling and unbelievable story about an educational vision that collapsed, about brotherhood, the loss of control, coming-of-age, and about the human spirit in which the good and bad, cruelty and grace, are mixed together.
