JERUSALEMS: THE BORDERLINE SYNDROME
Directed by | Eyal Sivan
Genre documentary | Length: 64mins | Year of production: 1994
Sivan turns the camera on Jerusalem in this provocative and lyrical contemplation on the ‘sacred city.' In searching for a way of ‘capturing' the city, Sivan encounters a peculiar fetishism that afflicts the site as an object of multiple desires. The film takes its title from a psychiatric condition recognised since the 19th century as suffered by pilgrims and other visitors overwhelmed by Jerusalem and the powerful associations they place upon the city.
