NECROPOLIS

Israel 2020 | 75 min. | Hebrew | English subtitles

Written and Directed by: Keren Alexander

Producers: Avishay Peretz, Levi Zini

Cinematography: Adi Mozes

An underground kosher burial project, first in the world, is currently under construction in Jerusalem. The unique project reconciles engineering challenges to religious laws and offers a solution that is both green and innovative, still deeply rooted in Jewish history.

Under the spectacular constructions, we roam around the Upper and Lower Necropolis, and meet the people who make a living out of death. Does their ceremonial, and meticulous practice help them to better understand it?

Throughout history, humans have tried to grasp and defeat death, they all failed and died. I, for once, plan on overpowering it.  

Project status: In Development
