Puzzled Jerusalem

Filmmaker Asher Tlalim, one of the many Jerusalemites who left the city during the past two decades, observes the Jerusalem of today through its people: those living in West Jerusalem and those in East Jerusalem, Jews and Palestinians, secular and orthodox, those who still see Jerusalem as their home. Inspired by their evertday lives, as well as by the poets Yehuda Amichai and T.S. Elliot, Tlalim moves freely from the actual to the historical, from poetry to politics, from the personal to the universal, and from love to despair. Jerusalem, with all its internal conflicts, is a microcosm through which we can gain fascinating insights into Israeli society as a whole.

Festivals and Awards:


Director: Asher Tlalim

Producer: Chanoch Zeevi

Production Company: Maya Productions

Supporter(s): The New Fund for Cinema and Television; The Second Authority for Television and Radio
