Supergirl Palm Beach Jewish Film Festival

Naomi Kutin seems like a typical teenager.  She goes to school, does her homework, hangs out with friends, but how many 11 year olds could honestly claim to be the strongest girl in the world?  Raised in an Orthodox Jewish family, 95 pound Naomi is a competitive powerlifter who lifts nearly triple her bodyweight. Naomi has broken world records since the age of eight. Now, along with preparing for her Bat Mitzvah, and training for the biggest competition of her life, Naomi is faced with new challenges such as navigating difficult dietary restrictions, cyber-bullying, and more. As Naomi confronts these issues head on, the magnitude of her true strength and character is revealed. “Showing one who transcends stereotypes and at such a young age truly makes Kutin inspirational – a supergirl.” The Jerusalem Post
