The Wanted 18 / Amer Shomali & Paul Cowan


Through a clever mix of stop-motion animation and interviews, The Wanted 18 re-creates an astonishing true story: the Israeli army’s pursuit of 18 cows, whose independent milk production on a Palestinian collective farm had been declared “a threat to the national security of the state.” Variety says, “Highlighting the ridiculous without losing track of the seriousness of all acts of resistance, the film should open minds.” An enchanting tribute to ingenuity and activism.  (Jacob Burns Film Center)
