Laetitia Eido : Fauda (Netflix)

After the very successful run of Season 1 (aired worldwide on Netflix) FAUDA will return with Season 2 very soon.
LAETITIA EIDO  is currently shooting for Season 2 playing  series lead Dr Shirin El-Abed.
This action-thriller – BEST SCRIPT, FIPA 2016 – tackles the clichés about the Israeli-Palestinian divide, and is watched and loved as much by Israelis AND Palestinians, which itself is already a victory.
« ‘FAUDA’, which means ‘chaos’ in Arabic, is ground-breaking for the region: it’s mostly in Arabic with Hebrew subtitles, and it shows the conflict in a way that makes people from ‘all’ sides want to keep watching ». The authors are not naïve, they « don’t think a TV show can be the key to peace in the region or anything. But at the very least, Israelis and Palestinians might realize that the people they’ve labeled ‘the enemy’ for so long aren’t so different, after all. »
What makes this series so riveting: it’s not a black-and-white overview of tensions between the Israelis and Palestinians. The plot focuses on an Israel Defense Forces (IDF) unit re-assembling to try to eliminate a Hamas terrorist who was thought to have been killed in an earlier operation.

Laëtitia Eido:”HOLLY AIR” World Premiere at TRIBECA Film Festival

 

Our brilliant actress Laëtitia Eido plays the part of Lamia in “HOLLY AIR” which premiere tonight at TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL.

Adam (writer/director Shady Srour) is thoroughly in love with his wife Lamia (Laëtitia Eïdo), but that doesn’t make him a successful businessman. He needs money now more than ever as they’re experiencing a difficult pregnancy while his father is gravely ill. Adding the small daily misfortunes he encounters as an Arab Christian in Nazareth means Adam could really use a big break. He finds one where he least expects it: on the biblical hilltop Mount Precipice. He embarks on his latest, riskiest business venture: bottling the holy air and selling it to the city’s tourists.

A colorful snapshot of modern-day Nazareth, Holy Air examines the complicated emotions that go into living as a modern, progressive family on the world’s most spiritual ground. All around swirls the challenging social crosscurrents that Adam will need to navigate to get his idea off the ground: Catholic capitalists, Jewish bureaucrats, Muslim gangsters. Srour and Eïdo deliver remarkable and unflinching performances in this endearing comedy on spirituality, ideology, and survival—and which of the three must be sacrificed to preserve the others.
