[Cork] Film Screening: The Wanted 18 (Indie Cork Film Festival)
The Wanted 18 is a unique production that combines stop-motion animation, interviews, original drawings and archival footage to bring to life one of the strangest chapters in the history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
During the First Intifada in the 1980s, when Israel seized control of the movement of goods into the heavily-embargoed West Bank, a group of Palestinians from Beit Sahour managed to purchase cows and start a dairy farm to secure their own milk. Israel declared the farm a threat to the state’s national security, forcing the farmers to hide the cows.
“The film is funny and serious, it’s one of the greatest films I’ve seen in the past 10 years.”
