Tel Aviv is an amazing and vibrant city that is almost impossible to define or describe. But filmmaker Nellu Cohn does an amazing job of capturing what is unique and special about the city in Tel Aviv Live (documentary, 50 minutes). This is a stupendous film about art and artists and about the culture of a city.
