Olive tree carvers struggle to make a living amid pandemic


Beit Sahur (West Bank), Feb 20 (EFE) - (Camera: Joan Mas) In a workshop full of Christian iconography, Palestinian Firas Hawwash continues the trade he inherited from his grandfather: carving religious figures with olive wood, a tradition of the Holy Land that artisans like him struggle to maintain after almost a year without pilgrims because of the pandemic. He has not made a profit since then, spent his savings and had to lay off almost all of his employees. Nevertheless, he is determined to persevere in this trade.

  • Cinemas struggle amid coronavirus pandemic

    Los Angeles (US)/Beijing (China), Oct 20 (EFE), (Camera: Javier Romualdo/Sebastião Moreir).- Without any major releases scheduled between now and the end of the year, cinemas are dying on their feet. James Bond’s latest, No Time To Die, Black Widow, West Side Story and Dune has all been slated to premiere this fall but their respective studios have decided to put the release on hold due to the pandemic. Only Wonder Woman 1984 is due to hit the silver screen this Christmas period after being postponed several times.

Although countries like China have managed to somewhat recover the industry with the pandemic largely under control, the rest of the world is wondering what will be left of it once Covid-19 subsides.
