Synagogues across the borough opened their doors to movie crews last week for a new independent film.

Filming of "Bloody Jews" took place at Finchley Reform Synagogue and North London Synagogue.

The short film follows two Orthodox Jewish women who discover their desire for one another at the mikveh, a spiritual bath used to achieve ritual purity after menstruation.

Game of Thrones actor Josephine Gillan and new talent Milli-Rose Rubin, a performer at Elstree University Technical College star in the intense romantic drama.

The theme for the story came from Alicia Hoser, the film's writer and director, who experienced life as an Orthodox Jew for many years, including time spent studying in Israel.

Filming took place at the synagogues throughout the week and has currently no release date.
