Waiting for Light

 

ABOUT THE FILM

Easter in Palestine has a special meaning. This documentary film follows two Christian women from Ramallah in the West Bank during Easter Holy Week. They express their feelings towards being not permitted to attend the celebrations in Jerusalem (16 km far from Ramallah), and how they wait for the Holy Light to come from Jerusalem with other fellow Christians. Traditional customs of Easter are also shown, together with special events that took place during Easter Week.
