Walk down the streets of Jerusalem, and see the neighbourhood that was

www.jerusalemwearehere.com" target="_blank">Jerusalem, We Are Here is an interactive documentary that digitally brings Palestinians back into the Jerusalem neighborhoods from which they were expelled in 1948. Focusing primarily on the neighborhood of Katamon, Palestinian participants probed their families' past and engaged with the painful present. 

The films are embedded into a virtual tour where the audience - in Amman, Cairo, Jerusalem, Paris, Toronto and beyond - can “walk” down the streets of Katamon as these were filmed in 2012-2015. As you meander down the streets of contemporary Jerusalem, the soundscape is of the 1940s; and when you reach the home of each participant, you can watch the video/audio produced.
