Born in Jerusalem and Still Alive

Directors: Yosi Atia & David Ofek
Comedy | Hebrew | English | Israel | 2019 | 83 min

Jerusalem native Ronen Matalon overhears a tour guide offering a sanitized version of Jerusalem, his hometown’s recent history. This inspires him to begin his own “Terror Tour”, taking tourists to famous bombing sites, and giving them a droll take on the absurdity of everyday life during the terrorist attacks of the 1990s and 2000s. Through his work and a new romance, Ronen begins healing from the trauma of the terror that envelops his emotional life.
