The Wanted 18 – Official Festival Trailer
The Wanted 18 is a unique production that combines stop-motion animation, interviews, original drawings, and archival footage to bring to life one of the strangest chapters in the history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Poignant and thought-provoking, humorous and serious, it shows the power of grassroots activism, peaceful resistance and courage in a part of the world that is fraught with negative imagery and despair.
“The film is funny and serious, it’s one of the— INTISHAL AL TIMINI, SANAD FOUNDATION,
greatest films I’ve seen in the past ten years.”

The story is told from the perspective of both the cows and the activists. Directed, illustrated and narrated by acclaimed Palestinian artist Amer Shomali together with veteran Canadian director Paul Cowan, the film gives voice to the principled activists who participated in the dairy, their families and friends, and the people whose lives were changed by it.
This is an inspiring film about nation-building from the bottom up, by the people, not the politicians.
