The Wanted 18

Amer Shomali and Paul Cowan
Palestine/Canada/France, 2014
Arabic, with English Subtitles – 75 min 

A documentary animation, The Wanted 18 tells the true story of a Palestinian committee in the town of Beit Sahour (near Bethlehem) that purchased a herd of cows from a friendly kibbutz owner and used them in a bid to self-sustainably produce milk and thus undermine Israeli control and occupation. Seamlessly combining the comic and the tragically absurd, The Wanted 18 maps the story of non-violent resistance during the first intifada and how 18 cows came to be declared “dangerous for the security of the state of Israel”.
