"All Vows" is an English translation of "Kol Nidre", the incantation that begins the Yom Kippur service and which pre-emptively nullifies any future vows made unintentionally. The film uses ancient archival films to depict an unknowable future, reflected through a dissolving historic document.

Co-commissioned by Indiana University Cinema and the Dorit and Gerald Paul Program in Jewish Culture and the Arts of the Robert A. and Sandra S. Borns Program in Jewish Studies at Indiana.
