Dear friend of Salt + Light,
On the heels of a successful screening in Toronto, Salt + Light invites you to attend the Ottawa premiere of our latest documentary Across the Divide, taking place on the evening of September 19 at St. Paul's University.
The event is co-sponsored by CNEWA Canada, the Archdiocese of Ottawa, the Holy Land Commissariat, and our hosts St. Paul University.
Our new film takes viewers to Bethlehem University, depicting the struggles of the students and the religious brothers who administer the school. Shot on location in Israel and the Palestinian Territories, Across the Divide provides hope amid the divisions that all-too-often define the Holy Land.
Following the film, there will be a panel on discussion on the current state of Christians in the Holy Land. Participants include His Grace Archbishop Terrence Prendergast the Archbishop of Ottawa, Carl Hétu of CNEWA Canada, Kris Dmytrenko the writer and co-director of the film and Fr. Thomas Rosica, CEO of Salt + Light.
"For the students who grew up in Bethlehem, the conflict is the only reality they've known. They've been disappointed time and again by the stalling peace process. Some flee their homeland and others fall victim to despair. An education, though, gives them tools to rebuild society and fuels their hope."
- Kris Dmytrenko, writer/co-director
It would be our great pleasure if you could join us for what is sure to be an enjoyable and informative evening.
