Nobody Should Know

Nobody Should Know

A film by Andrea Eisenman

Nobody Should Know reveals stories of secrecy and sacrifice for Orthodox Jews living with the genetic disease cystic fibrosis.  Director and producer Andrea Eisenman, who has the disease, finds her way into closed Orthodox communities, worlds of strict religious practices and a pervasive stigma against disclosing that one has the disease.  There she meets three brave individuals with cystic fibrosis who struggle with intensive daily medical regimens under a veil of secrecy, so that they will not shame their families or violate their traditions.  Their courage causes Andrea to reflect on how much the circumstances one is born into affect one’s fate and what it means to get a second chance in life.


The Nobody Should Know team has nearly completed production.  They continue to flesh out elements of the story and are currently cutting a trailer to raise money for post-production.
