EXCLUSIVE: Chelsea Clinton makes her filmmaking debut this month at the Tribeca Film Festival with interfaith docu short Of Many, directed by NYU professor Linda G. Mills. The 34-minute film tracks the story of orthodox Rabbi Yehuda Sarna and Imam Khalid Latif, two NYU chaplains who formed an unexpected collaboration to bring their respective Jewish and Muslim communities together in a post-9/11 New York. Mills, Clinton, Sarna, and Latif co-founded NYU’s Of Many Institute in 2012 to foster friendship and understanding between students of different faiths. The film tracks both chaplains’ efforts to inspire their students to dialogue, pray, and volunteer for disaster relief together in spite of their religious differences. Pic debuts April 17 at Tribeca and has already screened for buyers, with Brigade’s Adam Kersh handling sales. Check out the trailer:
