A Tramway in Jerusalem (2018)
NAME OF FILM: A TRAMWAY IN JERUSALEM
DIRECTOR(S): Amos Gitai
STARRING: Achinoam Nini, Mathieu Amalric, Elias Amalric
GENRE: Drama Film
SYNOPSIS: The Light Rail Red Line of Jerusalem’s tramway connects the city from East to West, from the Palestinian neighborhoods of Shuafat and Beit Hanina to Mount Herzl—a journey that comprises the culturally complex makeup of the city. This humorous and touching film, whose cast includes Mathieu Amalric and Hana Laslo, hinges on a series of encounters along the line: simple, mundane interactions that reveal the diverse mosaic of humanity that exists in the spiritual center of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.
The 28th annual New York Jewish Film Festival will take place January 9 to 22, 2019, featuring new work as well as restored classics.
