Eliyahu Ungar-Sargon Director has a staff – and local – look at the controversy involving male infant circumcision in his documentary, cut.

A graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Ungar-Sargon interviews that school teachers and University of Chicago as he examines the pros and cons, ethics and physics, a procedure that, for Jews, has made the pact between God and Abraham for centuries.

Is a newcomer in the United States routinely performed only from the Civil War / Victorian era in the belief that discouraged masturbation and prostitution. In the camera experts debunk most recent health claims benefit.

Ungar-Sargon consultations Orthodox Jewish father and his brother as he struggles with his own feelings about the procedure, which some consider a violation of human rights; also asks mohels and rabbis, parents who follow the tradition and the men who repent of their circumcision (the material of the regenerative device Tugger foreskin alone makes this unsuitable for younger audiences).

Viewers are left with a pretty good idea of what Ungar-Sargon Orthodox will do if and when he has a son, but in this informative and stimulating film, gives his opinion on both sides.
