"For many years I wanted to make a movie on the Mount of Olives,” said Yaelle Kayam, who has realized her dream with her movie, Mountain, which is playing throughout Israel and at festivals around the world.
“Visually, the place is so strong, it just spoke to me. The place contains so many stories, hopes, dreams and narratives. It’s the oldest Jewish cemetery in the world that is still active.”
The movie has won several international prizes, including the Special Jury Award at the San Francisco International Film Festival.
