The Therapy 

Directed by Zvi Landsman
Israel / 2021 / Documentary
85 minutes / English & Hebrew

Lev, a 54-year-old divorced Orthodox Jewish father, attends LGBTQ+ conversion therapy. Trying to diminish his unwanted “attractions” and hoping to be remarried to a woman, he attempts both one-on-one and group therapy sessions. Ben, a 23-year-old social-work student, is already seven years into his own treatment when he sets out on a research quest to discover the truth about the potential harm caused during the process. He learns that the way out can be far more painful than he originally thought. “The Therapy” is an urgent, no-holds-barred look inside at not just conversion therapy but also the people who enter these practices initially unaware of their dangerous effects.
