Holy Air

Sydney Film Festival

Adam (Shady Srour) is a Christian Arab in Nazareth struggling financially and in search of a lucrative business opportunity. He hits on the notion of selling 'Holy Air' to religious pilgrims somewhat to the dismay of his local priest who has his own interests in obtaining financial benefit from the tourism. At the same time Adam is dealing with the prospects of first time fatherhood and an unhappy Muslim partner in their struggling financial business.

Promoted in the Festival program as a comedy this plot sounded funnier on paper than what came across on screen. Perhaps it is a cultural thing.

Interesting to a point but some of the message was lost to me.
