Via Dolorosa Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Noted playwright and screenwriter David Hare stars in this one man filmed stage play that was the toast of both London's West End and of Broadway. Using a spare set-up of four stationary cameras, the film shows Hare recounting his disconcerting visit to Israel. He compares it with his native Britain, which he describes as having lost something to believe in. By contrast, he evokes the vitality of Israel. He meditates on that country's clash between the secular and religious realms, "Jewish identity," and the history of Zionism. This film was screened at the 2000 Sundance Film Festival. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi
