They Ain't Ready For Me dir. Brad Rothschild | 2019 | 89 min They Ain’t Ready For Me is the story of Tamar Manasseh, the African-American rabbinical student who is leading the fight against senseless killings on the south side of Chicago. The film explores the challenges and motivations of this fearless community leader as she works to prevent more people from being killed by gun violence. Tamar's complex identity and magnetic personality combine to make her a force to be reckoned with, and she hasn't even hit her stride yet.
