Tel Aviv - A Life between Heaven and Hell
Tel Aviv - Leben zwischen Himmel und Hölle
Tel Aviv, "the big orange», is known for its openness and tolerance. It all started over 100 years ago on the dunes north of Jaffa, when 66 Jewish immigrant families acquired land with the aim of founding a garden city. Whilst Jerusalem is regarded as the spiritual heart, Tel Aviv presents itself as cosmopolitan and modern. The «white city» on the Mediterranean is a magnet for young people and creative types from all over the world. It is a centre for art, fashion, beach and nightlife, a city that is growing all the time and constantly in motion. Although Tel Aviv as the former capital of the nascent state of Israel was and still is so important for the country's identity, the people who live here sometimes give the impression that they live in a bubble, turning away from the politics and acts of war that surround them. Old and young inhabitants of Tel Aviv present the «big orange» in this documentary.
