Sabbath Queen at the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival

Filmed over 21 years, Sabbath Queen follows Rabbi Amichai Lau Lavie’s epic journey as the dynastic heir of 38 generations of Orthodox rabbis who rejects his traditional destiny and becomes a drag-queen rebel, a queer father, and the founder of Lab/Shul – an everybody-friendly, God-optional, artist-driven, pop-up experimental congregation in New York! The film will screen twice and there will be a special Soul Spa program as a part of the 44th annual San Francisco Jewish Film Festival this July as it makes its west coast premiere!

Sabbath Queen, supported with funding from Reboot and executive produced by Adrian Salpeter, captures director Sandi DuBowski and Amichai Lau-Lavie (all Reboot Network members) on a lifelong and cinematic quest to creatively and radically reinvent religion, ritual, and love for a challenging, rapidly changing 21st century. The film is a recipient of a 2023 JFI Completion Grant
