In Jerusalem

Created when Jerusalem was still divided between Israel and Jordan, the film’s ten chapters shows people in their “own private Jerusalem,” joined together by repeated images of a stone mason at work. Both lyrical and fragmented as it presents the city with all the diversity of life, the film created a shock upon its release in Israel. “When I first saw In Jerusalem in 1963, I was not yet aware of the importance of David Perlov in the history of Israeli filmmaking, but I felt that with this film the Israeli cinema was being born right in front of my eyes.” Uri Klein, Ha’aretz film critic.
