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.
