Event Description

t started simply enough, with the purchase of 18 cows. Bought by residents of the West Bank town of Beit Sahour, the cows were a symbol of freedom and resistance, allowing them to provide milk for their children rather than buying it from an Israeli company.

But these were not ordinary times. The first Palestinian popular movement in the West Bank was rising and soon the illegal cows, cherished by the Palestinians, were being sought by the Israeli army. With humour and passion, The Wanted 18 captures the spirit of the 1987 uprising through the personal experiences of those who lived it, bringing to life one of the strangest chapters in the history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Best Documentary from the Arab World, Abu Dhabi Film Festival 2014; Golden tanit for Best Documentary, Carthage Film Festival 2014; Best Documentary, Traverse City Film Festival; Palestinian submission to the 88th Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film
