ARCATA– Let’s Talk About the Middle East Film Screening: THE WANTED 18 (2015, Palestine)
February 8, 2018 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pmFree
ARCATA– As part of the Let’s Talk About the Middle East film and discussion series, Humboldt State University History professor Dr. Leena Dallasheh hosts a screening of The Wanted 18 (2015, Palestine).
Combining creative animation with a story-telling and documentary reporting style, this film follows how 18 cows became Israel’s most wanted fugitives and symbols of Palestinian resistance. A true story of a Palestinian community in the town of Beit Sahour, near Bethlehem, during the Intifada, the Palestinian uprising in the 1980s-1990s, the film is comical and evocative.
The screening and discussion will take place at The Miniplex at Richards’ Goat (401 I Street, Arcata)
Free and open to all ages.
