Jerusalem 24

Volker Heise

24h Jerusalem tells the story of one day in this magical city full of contradictions. An extraordinary project from the heart of a conflicted land. Jerusalem, a city like no other, a place of borders, dreams and ideologies. This is where heaven and earth meet – with them, the religions of the world. Yet in Jerusalem, conflicts and struggles come to a head. For decades, Israelis and Palestinians have been wrestling for their own spot in this divided city.
The 24h TV programme gives viewers a glimpse of everday lives of Jerusalem’s residents, following them as they go about their days.
