There is a little-known hiking trail in Israel that reveals the sublime beauty of the Middle Eastern wilderness called “Chemin des Anges,” or “Shvil Yisrael,” in Hebrew and crosses the whole country for nearly 1200 kilometers. Director Steve Suissa notes: “It attracts people from all over the world as well as the Israelis themselves who… believe that this long walk is the most beautiful way to discover their country, and to get back to basics: meeting and sharing.” Their stories and testimonies are as different as they are universal, as ordinary as they are extra-ordinary. In this breathtakingly beautiful film which presents a largely unseen part of Israel’s natural landscape, a young woman who knows nothing about it feels called to discover it for herself, an adventure she takes entirely on her own. Landscape after landscape, encounter after encounter, what seems like a simple journey turns into a deep, inner spiritual quest. 


The Miami Jewish Film Festival virtual program is made possible with the generous support of Benjamin Nahum and Tamar Roodner.
