Israel, 2015, 97 mins.

P.S. Jerusalem is the story of one family in search of home. After living in New York City for two decades, filmmaker Danae Elon makes the decision to move with her husband and children to Jerusalem. This complicated choice goes against the last wishes of Danae’s father, acclaimed author Amos Elon, who made her promise that she would not return to the city in which he had so painfully lost faith. Through her camera’s lens, she intimately narrates her children’s and her husband’s experiences, bravely exposing the complexities of life in Jerusalem and Israel, and one family’s challenge to find their “home.” “. . . a deeply affecting, very personal film about the nature of identity.”—Toronto Film Scene.
