Some of the best documentaries are also the most unlikely. Director Jason Hutt follows the audacious contest launched by best-selling author Joshua Foer (brother of novelist Jonathan Safran Foer), who wondered what the world’s best architects might devise when challenged to design and build kosher sukkahs, the winners to be displayed in Union Square. The results are staggeringly creative and shed light on the religious, cultural, and architectural relevance and meaning of Sukkot today.
