UK Premiere

Celebrated Israeli director Amos Gitai’s latest film is a unique and ambitious project – an amusing series of vignettes set on Jerusalem’s tramway reflects the city’s incredible human diversity, as well as its fragmentation and political tension. The cast – including Mathieu Amalric (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly) and Hana Laslo (who won the Best Actress Award at Cannes in 2005 for Gitai’s Free Zone) – is huge, as is the number of languages spoken, and Gitai’s inspiration list includes Flaubert, Pasolini and the book of Deuteronomy. A Tramway to Jerusalem demonstrates yet again Gitai’s truly visionary and original filmmaking.

Followed by a Q&A with director Amos Gitai
