Filmscreening: The Wanted 18 – Filmhuis Cavia
November 25, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
The situation in Gaza is only getting worse and worse. Still, bombs are dropping every day, over 13000 Palestinians have died and millions are internally displaced, facing death because of starvation and a collapsed health system. This is a continuation of genocide, it is a new horrifying chapter in the settler colonial occupation of Palestine. The West is responsible for this and keeps on being complicit in the deaths of Palestinians by failing to call for an end of occupation and apartheid and by failing to call for an immediate ceasefire!
𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗪𝗮𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗱 𝟭𝟴 + Q&A with local activists
Amer Shomali & Paul Cowan | 2014 | Canada, France, Palestina | 75’ | EN subs
𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗪𝗮𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗱 𝟭𝟴 is an award winning documentary by filmmakers Amer Shomali and Paul Cowan that tells the story of how 18 cows were declared a threat to Israel’s national security during the first Intifada. A group of Palestinians begins producing milk for the residents of Beit Sahour, a small town in the Occupied West Banks, determined to be a model of self-reliance and provide their community with alternatives to replace Israeli goods.
We invite you to an evening where we come to learn about and appreciate the creative forms of resistance adopted by the Palestinian during the first Intifada in 1987. After the screening, we will have a discussion together with local activists in solidarity with Palestine. Collectively we further contemplate on new manners of approaching political resistance and social change. We will explore together the possibilities of activism, intervention and solidarity as residents of a first-world country.
