Ring Family Wesleyan University Israeli Film Festival: Born in Jerusalem and Still Alive

08:00 pm

Goldsmith Family Cinema, 301 Washington Terrace

BORN IN JERUSALEM AND STILL ALIVE New England Premiere While walking down Jaffa Road, Jerusalem native Ronen Matalon overhears a tour guide offering a sanitized version of his hometowns recent history. This inspires him to begin his own Terror Tour, taking tourists to famous bombing sites and giving them a droll take on the absurdity of everyday life in the 1990s and 2000s. On one of his tours, he meets Asia, an ex-Jerusalemite living in Barcelona, and their relationship challenges him to begin healing from the trauma that envelops his emotional life. Speaker: Laura Blum, Film Critic Free admission. Open to the Public.
