New film asks if the land of Jesus risks being left without Christians


-"Yes, that whole trip thing is all well and good, but we still don't know why you went or what happened to you there..."

“Holy Land. The Final Pilgrimage” tells the story of a family in crisis that embarks on a journey to the Holy Land, opening a bag of mixed emotions along the way. 

-“My best friend goes on a trip he would have never gone on, where something strange happens to him, and he doesn't even want to tell me...."
-"...How is this possible? What have you gotten into?”

There, they meet people whose lives and stories move them. 

JESÚS GARCÍA
Writer and Journalist
“I saw Muslims making pilgrimages to Mecca and I asked, 'why aren't we going to the Holy Land?'”

Fewer and fewer pilgrims were visiting the Holy Land even before the pandemic. Among the reasons are increasing indifference and declining faith.

HALIL HANIYA
Christian in Bethlehem
“What do we gain if Christians leave Bethlehem? It would just be a site to visit and the spirit would be lost. We are the witnesses of Jesus here.”

But now Christians are moving away from the region to look for work. Will the land of Jesus be left without Christians? 

This is the question behind “Holy Land: the Final Pilgrimage”. The answer lies in understanding what’s happening right now in the land where Jesus walked.
