Please join us in Film Screening: THE WANTED 18 Directed by Amer Shomali and Paul Cowan
Tuesday, October 13
Martin E. Segal Theatre
Humorous and thought provoking, The Wanted 18 shows the power of mass mobilization and nonviolent resistance to the Israeli occupation during the First Intifada. The film tells the story of 18 dairy cows being brought to the West Bank town of Beit Sahour, as part of a self-sufficiency movement, which were then declared a security threat to the state of Israel. Blending stop-motion animation and graphic novel cartoons with archival footage and interviews, the film uses humor to get at a serious subject. This is a poignant film about nation-building from the bottom up, by the people, not the politicians. Variety called the film ‘mind-opening’ & ‘ingenious.’
