Gutsy cinema that breaks new ground
| 81 minutes | 2017
Desperately in need of cash, an Israeli father-to-be decides to bottle and sell “holy air” to religious tourists. In his second feature, Shady Srour examines the everyday life of a modern, progressive family living on the world’s most hallowed ground. Catholics, Muslims and Jews live cheek-by-jowl in a city where the film’s protagonist (played by Srour himself) struggles to find meaning in his existence. A tale of survival and ideology, Holy Air captures the absurdity of the human comedy with finesse, poetry and a finely honed sense of satire.IN THE PRESENCE OF THE ACTRESS AND THE DIRECTORIN COMPETITIONWith the support of the CONSULATE GENERAL OF ISRAEL IN MONTREAL
