Director Biography - Rabbi Zeekee

Born on April 14, 2005 to a religious Modern-Orthodox-Machmir Jewish family, Ezekiah Isaiah Thurm (Rabbi Zeekee) is an intelligent screenwriter, director, producer, video editor, author, and filmmaker whose filmography began when he was only a 9-year-old with access to a homegrown camcorder.

7 years of trial, fail, trepidation and triumph later,
Rabbi Zeekee has finally produced his debut short film, Blessed/Béni/בָּרוּך/ได้รับพร; the October 2022 winner of the "Best Experimental Film" award at MDIFF (the Multi Dimension Independent Film Festival).

Wish him the warmest luck and he'll equally reward you with warmhearted slices of independent cinema he is delighted to share!

It won't be long before his fame will begin!
