JERUSALEM 3D (2013) [Special Event]

(MIFF 2014 )
Director: Daniel Ferguson

Filmed for the first time in 3D and specifically for the giant screen, Jerusalem takes viewers inside one of the world's most ancient and important cities.

Spiritually significant to Christianity, Judaism and Islam, and subsequently one of the holiest, and most contested, pockets of land on the globe, Jerusalem is also a World Heritage site full of extraordinary architecture and exquisite art.

For this special IMAX film, director Daniel Ferguson gained unprecedented access to the city's most sacred sites, guided by archaeologist Jodi Magness, and presents breathtaking visuals of them alongside rare and jaw-dropping aerial footage, resulting in a stunning cinematic experience.

Narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch, and deliberately apolitical, Jerusalem is an exploration of the city's greatest mysteries, and an investigation into the roots of its universal appeal.

"At once awe-inspiring and intimate." – Washington Post
