Directed by Danae Elon

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.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
