    Whereabouts in Mount Zion is the house? I don’t believe that house in the film is there.
    Jeff Teel on ‘Following the Straight Path’ tried to find the house during his travels:
    I love how in-depth he goes into his travel because I’m such a huge fan of the film.
    I believe in the picture above is a set and is actually in a totally different location, instead of the actual real life house of Mount Zion where the story took place.
