22 Jan There are Three Gates to Hell…
Hours before Sarah’s (Danielle Jadelyn) trip to Israel, her father (Howard Rypp) gives her a pair of “Smart Glass” glasses that allow her to Skype, open up maps, and recognize unfamiliar faces using WiFi. This plays a large role in JeruZalem, as the film is mostly shot from a first person perspective. As Sarah and her friend Rachel (Yael Grobglas, “Jane the Virgin”) aboard the plane overseas they meet a young man, Kevin (Yon Tumarkin), who expresses his love for ancient history. Intrigued, Sarah and Rachel decide to join Kevin in Jerusalem instead of their original plan to Tel Aviv. Coincidentally Yom Kippur is approaching and as things slowly become more bizarre each day, Rachel and Sarah realize they probably should’ve stuck with their original plans.
Thankfully we get to see the unusual mishaps first hand thanks to Sarah’s smart glasses; everything Sarah sees, we see too. This is perhaps the most interesting part of JeruZalem as it’s a way of storytelling we don’t see very often. Not to mention the smart glasses give more in-depth details of where Sarah is, important facts, and who she’s looking at with side panels full of information. After the credits, FlixFling takes an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at what went into making the film. We definitely suggest sticking around for these bonus features to see the zombie makeovers, the city of Jerusalem, and special effects.
