Born in Jerusalem and Still Alive

Born in Jerusalem and Still Alive

"A sweet parable about the impossibility of transmitting the chaos created by terrorism." — Critique Film


A dark romantic comedy following the life of Ronen Matalon. Born and raised in Jerusalem, Ronen begins to conduct tours of famous terror attack sites along Jaffa Street, while also taking care of his elderly and dependent father. During one of his tours he meets Asia Mulan, an ex-Jerusalem resident who lives in Barcelona and possesses an unquenchable thirst for life. They fall in love, and Ronen is torn between the forces of life and forces of death that pull on him from opposite directions.
