An Israeli epic. Two women seek out a new life in the Holy Land in this beautiful, powerful portrait of the birth of Israel. Berlin Jerusalem tells the story of two women: Else Lasker-Schuler, a German expressionist poet, and Mania Shohat, a Russian revolutionary. Their journeys intersect in Jerusalem, both a real city and the mythical place of their dreams. They shudder at the reality but remain committed to making a better world. Gorgeously photographed, this is a feast for the senses and a provocative commentary on the conflict in the Middle East today. In German, Hebrew and other languages, with English subtitles.
