Docs For Education

September 6, 2011

Dear *|FNAME|* *|LNAME|*,

Docs for Education is a new project to help talented award-winning Israeli filmmakers reach the educational market.

Our first choice isLady Kul El-Arab, a film by Ibtisam Salh Mara'ana, a very talented Arab-Israeli director whose films deal with the difficult life of women in Traditional Muslim society. Her films have received world-wide recognition by leading film festivals.

Lady Kul El-Arab

It is a wonderful film exposing a world mostly unknown to the public, that of the Lady Kul El-Arab beauty pageant for Arab women in Israel. The film focuses on Angelina-Duah Fares, a young Druze woman who aspired to be Miss Israel and Miss Universe, but who was forced to leave the contest after she and her family received death threats.

This film has received many prizes in film festivals all around the world, and I highly recommend it.

P.S. ... A tragic event happened a few weeks ago. Mona Fares, Angelina's sister, was murdered because she didn't want to dress or behave in the traditional manner. Now, no Model agency wants to hire Angelina because they have also received threats.

We promise to send only occasional notices of new films, and will never share your email address with another party.
