'Orthodox Stance' at Cinerama

Born in the Ukraine and raised in Brooklyn, Dmitriy Salita is a practicing Orthodox Jew and professional boxer. This documentary catches him at the moment he is about to reach the peak of his career. He has not lost a fight and is determined to get to the top. He has support from his Jewish community, black American friends, and Latino trainers. Although Orthodox, Dmitriy does not live in a closed world. Indeed, Orthodox Stance overflows with the boxer's humanity. (Cinerama, 2100 Fourth Ave, 441-3080. 7:30 pm, $7–$10.)

Sounds uplifting...and for sure looks like there's fire in the hole.

But don't orthodox Jews have to cover their bodies? And what if there are women in the audience?

I saw this in San Francisco last year at the Castro -- the film maker and Salita made an appearance as well.

The film is really enjoyable, and Dmitry Salita is classy, charming and down-to-earth. Check it out!

Orthodox women have to cover their bodies. Apparently, just the sight of an elbow or a collarbone could drive a man to distraction.
