Episode 1: FAITH
Political comedy is part of the Jewish culture. But left-wing comedians have a hard time in today's Jerusalem. This scene was shot in public. Most passersby did not know that we were filming.
Episode 2: LOVE
For many Palestinians normal relations with Jewish Israelis are a taboo. This political position is called anti-normalisation. For the Palestinian actress in this movie it was inappropriate to smile or flirt with the Israeli actor.
Episode 3: HOPE
For many decades, Christians from all over the world with the Jerusalem Syndrome were regular guests in the city. There were even special psychiatric wards for all the Jesuses who visited Jerusalem.
Episode 4: FEAR
The Parliament building in Abu Dis is the beautiful, sad monument of a missed opportunity. You can jump the fence and visit the construction. For the movie we did not get the permission to shoot the scene with Arafat. The building you saw is an alternative location.
Available in the ARTE360 VR App.
