Join the young women from the film Jerusalem—Farah Ammouri, Nadia Tadros and Revital Zacharie—for a discussion about the making of the film and its themes. Introduction by Lisa Truitt, president of National Geographic Cinema Ventures.
Using the world’s most advanced 3D and IMAX film technology, JERUSALEM brings to audiences spectacular, never-before-seen footage of this much-loved 5,000-year old city. The film tells the complicated and fascinating story of Jerusalem through the viewpoints of the three main religions—Christianity, Islam and Judaism. Each is represented by a young woman who shows us “her” Jerusalem. The archaeology of Jerusalem is also explored in the film to understand its importance in world history.
Presented by George Washington University’s Rabin Chair Forum and Middle East Policy Forum, together with the Middle East Program of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. This program is co-sponsored by George Washington University’s Judaic Studies Program and GW Libraries.
