Hats of Jerusalem

A visitor to the old city of Jerusalem is struck by the immense variety of people of various nations and religions thronging the narrow alleys. Each hat and headdress serves not only as protection against the weather, but also as an identity card, a product of many centuries of tradition. This is a story about hats, but it is actually an account of what lies beneath them. It is a film about external appearances and internal identities, and about people who live in Jerusalem.
