Footsteps in Jerusalem

Footsteps in Jerusalem is a tribute to David Perlov and to his 1963 revolutionary film “In Jerusalem”, made a few years before the ‘67 War.
The film, which won the bronze medal at the Venice Film Festival in 1963, was produced at a time when Jerusalem was divided between Jordan and Israel by “no-man’s land” and sniper fire.
In Jerusalem offered a change from the “Zionist” patriotic, propagandist and outdated cinema to a cinema that is personal-artistic. It paved the way for dozens of documentary filmmakers and for the success and recognition Israeli documentary cinema receives worldwide today.
