    ... I only wish the famous Parisian Cinémathèque had. The tragic aspect of this unique place, clinging solitary to the rock of Gehenom Valley, that by being devoid of the religious, messianic, nationalist, militarist, colonialist disease called 'Jerusalem Syndrome', hopelessly afflicting the population of this city, it has been an ultimately introvert universe, a tiny Cinematheque Republic in the State of Israel. It has been a place open to everyone but frequented and dearly loved by the dovish youth and intellectuals who dreamed other dreams than abrahamic fundamentalist nightmares. Lea Van Leer, I still keep my yearly subscription tickets from the late nineties, and my hat is forever off for the Queen of this tiny island of free spirit, with its two hundred stairs down the hill, its terrace overlooking the desolate eastern hills and its halls carved deep into the rock.
