Beauty Queen of Jerusalem

Beauty Queen of Jerusalem

Spanning from the early to the mid 20th century, The Beauty Queen of Jerusalem unravels, recreates, and brings to life the story of three generations of the Ermosa family - cursed to marry and live without love. Adapted from the bestselling novel of the same name, the series is set against the backdrop of the Ottoman Empire, the British Mandate, and the establishment of the Jewish state. 

Starring a role call of your favourite Israeli stars including Michael Aloni (Shtisel), Hila Saada (The Baker & the Beauty) and Itzik Cohen (Fauda), this epic multi-generational family melodrama is Israel’s first period drama, and one of the biggest budget series ever produced in the country.

JIFF presents the Australian premiere screenings of the first two episodes.
