S+L film 'opens our lens' to Christians in the Holy Land
September 8, 2012
The long-suffering Christians of the Holy Land are rarely discussed in the West. However, for one night in Toronto, they were the focus of over 350 guests at the St. Michael’s College School Centre for the Arts.
The diverse audience came to see the Toronto premiere of Across the Divide. This S+L documentary takes viewers to Bethlehem University, a Catholic institution that, since its founding in 1973, has been caught in the crossfire of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Co-sponsored by CNEWA Canada and the Archdiocese of Toronto, this was the third public screening of the film, following events in Vancouver and Halifax this summer, and ahead of the Ottawa premiere on Wednesday, September 19. (Tickets can be reserved in advance at the Across the Divide website.) Read the Catholic Register’s report about last night’s event.
