ME: What inspired the making of the feature film THE SECRETS?

AN: I have met some of the young women that attend seminary and heard tremendously interesting and passionate stories. It's really a great subject matter, the whole notion of collision between religion and the modern world; religion and sexuality, discovering who you are.  I wrote the film with an orthodox woman a great playwright who knows a lot about the subject matter.

ME:  Thank you, Avi.
