Jerusalem: Yours, Mine And Ours

In celebration today of Yom Yerushalayim, I am posting this trailer for a new feature length documentary film being made by Liz Nord, called “Battle for Jerusalem.” It is about how young artists and activists are working to culturally revitalize Jerusalem at a time when there is a political and social war waging between the Haredim (ultra-Orthodox) and secular/more moderately religious Jews for control of the city.

I will be in Jerusalem this summer covering the Jerusalem Season of Culture, and I look forward to delving more deeply into the subject of Nord’s film while there.
