Praise for Project Jerusalem
“Project Jerusalem is a fascinating film that chronicles director Jenna Hill’s journey to understand some of the spiritual influences on her life and consequently on her understanding of spiritual concepts triggered by a ‘pilgrimage’ to Jerusalem. The movie is full of movement, sound, picture and impressions. The contemporary visit to Jerusalem is interspersed with significant personal moments, discussion and diary extracts, and other thoughts from Jenna’s upbringing featuring interviews with key influencers on her life. There is an honesty both to the story telling and the open conclusions in this film essay, which are valuable for us all.
Project Jerusalem was deservedly awarded the prestigious SIGNIS award at the 2011 Insight Film Festival.”
