A short documentary about the Four Day March to Jerusalem.
“Why do they march? One looks forward to a long journey to an unknown land; another – to some exercise and an escape from the city; a third person wishes for the renewal of the milligram to the Temple in Jerusalem, while a fourth already imagines a shiny bronze medal on their chest.” Sixteen thousand youth, elderly people, soldiers, and foreign tourists set off in spring 1963 on the Four Day March to Jerusalem. This film documents them in their campsite in Beit Shemesh, on the paths leading to the capital, and finally in a march through its main streets.
