Louisville Jewish Film Festival – Born in Jerusalem and Still Alive

February 13 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Born in Jerusalem and Still Alive

In this dark comedy and romance film, Ronen is a twenty-something schlemiel, leading tours of terror attack sites in his native Jerusalem. This is not a business for him—he doesn’t charge for the tours. Rather, it is his way to heal from the scarring trauma of coming of age in the late 1990s-early 2000s, when the violence between Israelis and Palestinians shaped the everyday fabric of life in the region. Ronen is played by writer and director, Yossi Atia, who based the script on his real life.

Israel, 83 minutes

Speaker: Asaf Angermann, JHFE Assistant Visiting Professor of Jewish Thought & Philosophy

Sponsored by Cantor David Lipp’s Discretionary Fund at Congregation Adath Jeshurun 

Winner of the Jerusalem Film Festival Award for Best First Feature.
