Jerusalem: Artists Fighting for Their Own Truth
Season 2, Episode 2
As one of the oldest cities in the world and of significance to followers of all three major religions, Jerusalem is constantly on edge. It is segregated into two distinct parts, East and West. In the streets, 18-year-old soldiers patrol the city with guns. Artists in both parts of the city are using art to find and fight for their own truth and bring about peace amid the regular eruptions of violence.
In this episode, we follow a Canadian comedian who uses satire to provoke and challenge, a dancer who improvises performances in the streets, a visual artist whose work interrogates relations between people and the notion of land, a dance collective bridging the gap between the religious and secular worlds, and a female hip-hop artist who sings about political realities. In their unique ways, each one keeps hope alive by carving out a space for their art in the city.
Featuring: Tzafira Stern, Mirna Bamieh, Rabbi Hananya Schwartz and the Ka’et Ensemble, Maysa Daw of DAM, and Avi Zimmerman.
