Galilean independence; the lost treasures of the Temple; a cult of fanatic zealots; an underground network of tunnels underneath Mount Meron – with this arsenal of ingredients at his disposal, Daniel Wachsmann set out to make the mockumentary we have here. Armed with a camera and donning an Indiana Jones-style fedora on his head, Wachsmann plays a documentary filmmaker who goes out on a sleuthing trail, following a mysterious death in the Galilee. Wachsmann takes great, discernible pleasure in weaving Jewish mythology into contemporary Galilee life. Using a cinematic language which he speaks fluently, coupled with the bewitching vistas of the Galilee in winter, he is able to breathe life into a local Twin Peaks-esque tale of sorts.
