Synopsis

At a time of existential threat to the physical and human environment we live in, Architect/Director Nili Portugali takes us into a deeply intimate journey in the Kabbala holy city of Tsefat. A journey that unfolds gradually from her present holistic/Buddhist/scientific Point of View to a discovery of profound universal insights of: What is their secret of all those great timeless places in which man feels ‘at home’, and what is that ‘One pure art of making’ that creates them (any the Arts), at any culture; place and time. That, via reconstructing in her unique poetic meditative cinematic language her childhood memories engraved on each stone of the invisible city’s history.
Using her body of experience she has been accumulating for years of multidisciplinary creation in the visual arts; writing; Architecture as my main profession, the film both in form and content cross new boundaries-Straddling between art and cinema
