Jerusalem Day Flag Parade on Eve of Ramadan
Here’s what June 5, 2016 stands to look like: The start of Ramadan in the Muslim Quarter, with tens of thousands of Muslim worshippers filling the streets on their way to al-Aqsa Mosque. And the Jerusalem Day nationalist Flag Parade, with thousands of Jewish nationalist marchers celebrating the 1967 “reunification of Jerusalem” planning to pass through the very same streets.
Can you imagine these two events coinciding?

Uncle Shlomo’s Jerusalem

Every morning Shlomo Wallach gets on his motorbike and goes back in time to a Jerusalem of the past, a Jerusalem of which he was never a part. The film accompanies Shlomo in his resolve to live in the past, and his attempts to revive the grand memories of his Jerusalemite family, led by a religious Jew, the founder of Shaare Tsedek Hospital, the well-known Dr. Moshe Wallach.

Boulders

In the context of borders, the film presents the Jerusalem neighborhood of Gilo, where the director was born and raised. The four points of the compass represent various borders – physical, but mainly mental – that help define the concept of identity. The past is not represented at all. The film reveals the director's memories on the background of the locations as they appear today. In this way, the concept of memory turns the look back into something inaccessible and unrepresentable. Eran Sahar

Bus Station

Two religious women, Ruba and Miriam, have each finished their shopping at the market. They sit at the same bus stop and wait. A random encounter between the two, who, at a glance, could not be more similar, becomes an impossible dialogue taking place in a city as complex as Jerusalem.

The Third Temple

The process of building and locating a model of the Third Temple in Jerusalem raises questions regarding the ethos of construction and demolition; and examines the attitude toward the representation of "holiness" in the Israeli-Jewish culture as reflected in the complex reality of Jerusalem/ Al Quds.
