After worldwide festivals and awards, watch at home the art film: And The Alley She Whitewashed In Light Blue” by Nili Portugali, an architect/director from Israel.
At a time of existential threat to the physical and human environment, Architect Portugali takes us into an intimate journey that unfolds to a discovery of universal insights from her holistic/Buddhist/scientific P.O.V: What is the secret of all Timeless places in which man feels ‘at Home’ and what is that “Pure Art of making” that creates them? At any culture; place; time. Via reconstructing childhood memories engraved on each stone of the holy city’s history of Tsefat, following her grandmother considered by Portugali to be “A Zen Master”, at the hotel she founded at the end of the alley in the old city.
The film is crossing new boundaries – straddling the line between art and cinema, architecture & Art, Jewish culture/childhood memories (from Tsefat), Holistic and Buddhist Philosophy.
To whoever aspires to create timeless places endowed with spirit and soul, that we really want to live in.
