Born In Jerusalem and Still Alive

New England Premiere

English subtitles, Directed by Yossi Atia and David Ofek (2019)

While walking down Jaffa Road, Jerusalem native Ronen Matalon overhears a tour guide offering a sanitized version of his hometown’s 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 1990’s and 2000’s. 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
