Intifada Milk: We Are Palestinians - We Deserve to Have A Home, We Deserve to Have Our Land, We Deserve to Have Our Freedom, and We Deserve to Have Cows
Lest we forget, the indignities and absurdities of the Israeli occupation go on, as do Palestinians' often-ingenious non-violent resistance to it. Thus, The Wanted 18, a new film - mixing Claymation, interviews and talking cows - that recreates the Israeli pursuit of 18 cows bought by the residents of the West Bank's Beit Sahour during the First Intifada to resist Israeli milk hegemony and create their own dairy co-op. The cows are declared "a threat to the national security," and go underground. The director on civil disobedience and cows on the lam: "A nation that can't make fun of its own wounds will never be able to heal."
