Coming September 23rd is an EXCLUSIVE AREA ENGAGEMENT at IMAX Palisades of National Geographic Cinema Venture’s new film Jerusalem which takes audiences on an eye-opening tour of one of the world’s oldest and most enigmatic cities. Filmed for the first time in IMAX, Jerusalem will be available in 15/70 film and digital formats when it is released worldwide. Jerusalem was executive produced by the late Jake Eberts, legendary financier of movies such as “Gandhi,” “Chariots of Fire” and “Dances with Wolves”; produced by Taran Davies, George Duffield and Daniel Ferguson; and directed by Daniel Ferguson. The film tells the stories of real-life inhabitants of the ancient city and of prominent archaeologists exploring the enduring appeal of this unique crossroads of civilization.
Jerusalem, an original production from Cosmic Picture and Arcane Pictures, aims to increase public awareness and appreciation for the city’s historical, spiritual, cultural and artistic contributions to the world. After years of working with various government ministries and religious and community leaders, the filmmakers were granted the exclusive permits necessary to capture aerial shots above the Old City of Jerusalem and throughout the Holy Land. As a result, audiences are given a rare bird’s-eye view of the storied city as well as unprecedented access to iconic holy sites and little-known parts of the region in one powerful, 45-minute giant screen film experience. Aside from the breathtaking scenery, Jerusalem also explores some of the surprising intersections between Judaism, Christianity and Islam, which come together in this sacred city.
