Israeli director Amos Gitai on his new film 'A Tramway in Jerusalem'
Date created :
Our guest is one of the most successful film directors that Israel has produced. Amos Gitai is in France - where he now spends much of his life - for the launch this April of his latest film, "A Tramway in Jerusalem". Gitai is a controversial figure within his own country, who does not shy away from addressing the open wounds of Israeli society. His latest film takes place almost entirely within a tram as it crosses from one end of Jerusalem to the other - a metaphor for Israel itself.
