Sikkuy – The Association for the Advancement of Civic Equality in Israel, which helped publicize the “Minions” screenings on various social network sites, told Haaretz: “It may seem like a small step for equality, but it is also of great significance. Suddenly, the movie theaters in Kfar Sava became a shared space for Jews and Arabs, where Arabic and Arab citizens have a real and respected place. It’s also a real achievement in light of the gap in resources, because although there’s still no movie theater in Tira or any other Arab city in the area, the option of coming to see a film with the children has finally become open to thousands of families. Above all, when such a struggle succeeds, it proves there’s still hope, and that things can be changed – even in difficult times when words of hatred come from the most senior levels of government.”
