To Die in Jerusalem (Lamut Be Yerushalaim)
Ever since 17-year-old Rachel Levy, an Israeli, was killed four years ago in Jerusalem by a Palestinian suicide bomber, her mother Abigail has found hardly a moment''s peace. Levy''s killer was Ayat al-Akhras, also a 17-year-old schoolgirl, from a Palestinian refugee camp several miles away. The two young girls looked unbelievably alike. The film explores the Palestinian-Israeli conflict as seen thru the eyes of the mothers of the two girls until their emotionally charged meeting face to face.
