One Rock Three Religions
Drawing from this powerful statement, “One Rock, Three Religions” explores humanity’s connection to one of the world’s most revered and disputed places, Jerusalem’s Haram Al Sharif or The Temple Mount. Jerusalem has been at the center of some of humanity’s most creative and dramatic periods. Today it finds itself again at the crossroads between East and West. The Israel Arab conflict has defied resolution for decades. It has horrified and outraged with its cynicism and cruelty. In the light of recent developments, we find the urgency to try to “connect” with the history of this place, the people, their beliefs…to finally find a key which can allow people to accept each other. Behind the political struggle is a unique and shared connection to the land that always focuses back on a single place, Jerusalem, and specifically the Temple Mount or Haram Al Sharif. There can’t be a resolution to the struggle without a mutual recognition of the site’s relevance and importance to both sides. “One Rock Three Religions”, takes us on an intimate journey forcing us to open our hearts and awaken our conscience, as it illuminates what the legendary mountain means to people around the world as well as to the participants in this terrible conflict. The film will expose the ramifications that the Holy site has on the political conflict, including the way it is used to provoke violence, while uncovering layers of history and taking into account the most recent archaeological finds.
