Life-Sized City – Episode 5: Tel Aviv
Directed by Myriam Berthelet
The Canadian television series “Life-Sized City” is so popular that it’s in Season 3, but has only been broadcasted in Canada and Europe with limited distribution in the U.S. Catch a rare screening of Episode 5 of Season 1 on the fascinating city of Tel Aviv-Jaffa, Israel, with its reputation as a laid-back and permissive party town in a hotbed of conflict and turmoil.

All people who define themselves as New Yorkers, Tel-Avivians or Montréalais have some things in common with others who hold the same self-definition. But that sense of belonging does not necessarily compromise other affinities. How do some cities enable a multitude of identities and coexistence? The short films in this program explore identity in the city, including the unique approach of the documentary short film "#6261" on strangers-neighbors who share a relationship with this number in Montreal, and "Life-Sized City - Episode 5:Tel-Aviv", exploring a city in conflict through grassroots urban initiatives that transcend religious, political and class boundaries.
