Film “The Wanted 18”

January 11 @ 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

Free

For a humorous introduction to the serious issue of Palestine and Israel, Utahns for a Just Peace in the Holy Land presents the award-winning film “The Wanted 18”.

Through a clever mix of stop motion animation and interviews, “The Wanted 18” recreates an astonishing true story: the Israeli army’s pursuit of 18 cows, whose independent milk production on a Palestinian collective farm was declared “a threat to the national security of the state of Israel.”

In the 1980s, as part of a Palestinian boycott of Israeli taxation and commodities, residents of Beit Sahour decided to form a collective and stop purchasing milk from Israeli companies, in a quest for greater self-sufficiency. They purchased cows from a sympathetic kibbutznik and set about teaching themselves how to care for the animals and milk them—even sending a member to the United States to learn dairy farming. The farm was a success, with strong local demand for “Intifada milk.” However, the herd was declared a “threat to the national security of the state of Israel” and Israel sought to impound the cows, forcing Palestinians to devise ways to keep them hidden.

This is the first of a series of monthly films on Palestine and Israel that will be presented with a brief discussion following the movie at Tenth East Senior Center. Free and open to the public. We look forward to seeing you there.
