Choosing life in life's final chapter is the poignant subtext of Next Year Jerusalem, a lyrical portrait of eight nursing home residents who make a pilgrimage to Israel.
Offered a seat on the bus for the tour, we accompany these individuals across stunning Israeli sites and landscapes, from mountains to desert. But the film is less a story about tourists in a foreign land than it is a meditation on the sanctity of the human experience and the wisdom acquired over a lifetime.
Surprisingly uplifting, Next Year Jerusalem is a true exploration of living and dying, hope and fear, and travel and memory...a celebration of - and a tribute to - life's eldest travelers.
