A film produced by the Israeli Film Service in collaboration with the Ministry of Housing and the Ministry of Education and Culture.
Following the SixDay War, large areas were added to Jerusalems municipal territory. With the end of the fighting, a construction boom began in these areas. The film describes the establishment of the new neighborhoods: Gilo, East Talpiot, Ramot Shapira, Neve Yaakov, Ramot, and Ramot Eshkol. The film moves between the architects offices and the construction sites and documents the construction work from different angles. The film provides a lot of statistical information from the number of iron bars needed to build a building to the average number of stones skilled stonemason cuts per day. the film also presents the design principle behind the construction of the new neighborhoods, which sought to preserve characteristics of old Jerusalem neighborhoods.
