PRESENTACIÓ

En època medieval Girona tenia una important població jueva. Aquí es va escriure, per primera vegada la Càbala. La Càbala té uns valors espirituals intrínsecament intangibles que s'havien de transmetre oralment.
Tretze curtmetratges configuren aquest programa de 90min., de cinema jueu, la majoria parlats en hebreu, un en anglès i un altre en francès. Els films procedeixen de diferents països, majoritàriament d'Israel, també Suïssa, Estats Units i Iran.
El programa pretén acostar-se a la natural idiosincràsia del poble jueu i els seus principis de pau reflectits als seus escrits sagrats, com aquest text de la Càbala: “La pau mundial és l'únic recipient que ens permet rebre la benedicció dels pares”. Aquest esperit traspua de les extravagants fantasies i de les històries de les pel·lícules que presentem en aquest programa.
