Impious Israel

“Do you believe in God? No? Why not?” This is the question the camera asks to Jewish Israeli citizens. The responses strike back, confusing and complex, sometimes baffling, but often amusing. How does one live as an atheist in the Holy Land, in a country following a religious pace, and whose geopolitical legitimacy relies on sacred references? Impious Israel was shot between September – December 2012 in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. The film was made without any support: I went there myself with my brain and a little camera.
