James' Journey to Jerusalem

A naive young Christian pilgrim from Africa arrives in Jerusalem looking for the land of milk and honey. Needless to say, the place isn't all the tourist brochures make it out to be. Immediately, our hero is snapped up by unscrupulous businessmen and exploited along with thousand of other immigrant laborers. The film does a fairly realistic job of portraying Israel's current woes, but the fairy tale atmosphere makes the whole thing a bit simplistic. Still, it's not hard to root for the film's wide-eyed protagonist. In English, Hebrew and Zulu with English subtitles. 87 minutes
