In celebration of 100 years since Tel Aviv’s establishment, this film chronicles the story of the largest city in Israel. Accompanying Tel Aviv from its inception as an unpretentious neighborhood on the outskirts of Ottoman Jaffa, this film is an opulent collage of rare footage and documentation of the architectural gems that led to Tel Aviv being named by Unesco as a World Heritage.
