Film Screening

The Wanted 18

Geelong, VIC


'The Wanted 18' is a 2014 Canadian-Palestinian animated documentary about the efforts of Palestinians in Beit Sahour to start a small local dairy industry during the First Intifada, hiding a herd of 18 dairy cows from Israeli security forces when the dairy collective was deemed a threat to Israel's national security. The film combines documentary interviews with those involved in the events, archival footage, drawings, black-and-white stop-motion animation as well as re-enactments.

Red Cinema is screening 'The Wanted 18' in commemoration of Al Nakba which for Palestinians is an annual day of commemoration of the displacement that preceded and followed the Israeli Declaration of Independence in 1948.
