Interview with Sandi Dubowski, Director of the Award Winning Documentary Trembling Before G-d
Interview with Sandi Dubowski, Director of the Award Winning Documentary Trembling Before G-d

Q - What is Trembling Before G-d about and where did you get the funding?
Sandi Dubowski - It’s about homosexuals in Orthodox Jewish society. The initial grants came from The Jerome FoundationJerome Foundation, The New York State Council For The ArtsThe New York State Council On The Arts and the Paul Robeson Fund for Independent MediaPaul Robeson Fund for Independent Media. Those kept the production going and allowed me to cut a little trailer. I was working a full time job at Planned Parenthood and it took awhile for me to sort of leap into the unknown and do the film full time. Then I went to the IFP Market (Independent Film Project Market focuses on unfinished movies looking for further funding) and I met a sales agent who put in some funding in order to be the sales agent and we were off and running.
