A Tree of Life: Pittsburgh Synagogue Shooting
Available on Prime Video, Crave, Telus TV+
On October 27, 2018, a gunman opened fire inside a Pittsburgh synagogue, killing eleven people as they prayed. Directed by Emmy®-winning filmmaker Trish Adlesic (HBO's I Am Evidence), this harrowing account of the deadliest antisemitic attack in American history provides a deeply personal portrait of the survivors, victims, and their family members, while also following the community's efforts to rebuild, heal, and collectively determine what justice looks like. With sensitivity and grace, A Tree of Life: The Pittsburgh Synagogue Shooting sheds light on the lasting trauma suffered by the community in Pittsburgh and brings into focus the looming threat to our society posed by the hate- based rhetoric surrounding many of today's mass shootings.
