The film, "Jerusalem," aims to explain the historical and religious importance of the ancient city by telling the stories of three families — one Jewish, one Christian, one Muslim — who live there. The film also follows Dr. Jodi Magness, the renowned archaeologist, as she goes underground to solve the city's mysteries. The film also goes far above ground, as filmmakers were given permission to fly in the region's strict no-fly zone to capture the first ever large-format aerial images of the Old City.
