Defend Press Freedom

In honor of World Press Freedom Day on May 3rd, we hope you will consider supporting The Media Line this month.
The role of a free press has been at the foundation of democracies around the world for nearly 200 years.
Yet, in many countries, publications are censored and journalists put their lives at risk to report the truth.
A transparent and reliable press covering the important issues of the Middle East is needed more than ever.

The Media Line is proud to assume this responsibility and has over 20 years of success in shaping the role of news reporting in the region. We hope you will support our efforts by making a donation today.

Thank you!

Thank you for confidence in The Media Line.

Go Out to the Living Room – ‘Holy Air’

Date and time: Thursday, June 25, 2020, 9 pm to 12 midnight Israel Daylight Time (UTC+3)

Register here.

A live screening of the film Holy Air and a meeting with director, writer and star Shady Srour and others.

Adam is a Christian Arab living in Nazareth – member of a vanishing minority within a minority in the Holy Land and the Middle East. His wife Lamia is a strong, beautiful and progressive Arab woman, who runs a foundation for women’s rights. When Adam hears that Lamia is pregnant and his father falls very ill, he evaluates his life and realizes that he has not achieved much. Despite all his business ideas failing so far, he gives one last try to make it big. And what’s better to sell in the Holy Land other than the very air that Virgin Mary breathed during her annunciation? But in order to, as one priest tells Adam during confession, bring such product into the market he needs to find allies from the three cultures ruling over Nazareth – the Jewish politicians, the Muslim mafia boss and the Catholic church officials. In a politically unstable world where religion is just another merchandise, can the Holy Air be Adam’s salvation of is it just an illusion? – IMDB

Link and video for the event will be sent on Thursday at 8 pm.

The film will also be broadcast on the Israel Film Funds’s Facebook page.

The Israeli Film Fund will hold a joint viewing club every week with the fund’s finest films. After each screening, a meeting will be held live with the creators and actors.

In short, a full experience of Israeli cinema will be brought to your home; you need not move from your couch.

The number of tickets is limited.

The film is open to viewers from Israel only.
