When Adam, a Christian Arab living in Nazareth, learns that his wife Lamia is pregnant and his father falls very ill, he needs money more than ever. Despite all his business ideas failing so far, he gives one last try to make it big, selling air from the Holy Land to the city’s tourists. But in order to 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.

From Amos Barzel’s “Am Yisrael,” describing Israel from a child’s point of view, to Aviv Geffen’s “La-netzah Ahi,” the anthem dedicated to soldiers lost in Lebanon and later used to memorialize Yitzchak Rabin, Cantor Ramón Tasat will lead us on a musical journey celebrating the State of Israel. 


25th Annual Virginia Festival of Jewish Film:Shelter
Saturday, January 20 | 7:15 PM
Chrysler Museum; Norfolk, VA
Naomi Rimon, a Mossad agent, is sent on an easy mission: to protect Mona, a Lebanese collaborator, in a safe house in Hamburg, Germany, for two weeks. But there are no easy missions, certainly not in the world of espionage and intrigue.
Based on The Link by Shulamit Hareven, this subtle thriller explores the intimacy that develops between the two women as they are exposed to the threat of terror that now engulfs the world. In this game of deception, beliefs are questioned and choices made that are not their own. Their fate takes a surprising turn in this suspense-laden, elegant neo-noir.
