This award-winning, mind-opening documentary exposes you to a humorous claymation to highlight an absurdist footnote in the Israeli occupation.

How could the sadly absurd Israeli occupation transform the simple act of milking cows into a perceived threat to national security? That’s the amazing story of Paul Cowan and Amer Shomali’s ingenious documentary, “The Wanted 18.” Mixing talking heads, a bit of archival footage, and smile-inducing claymation, the film brings to life a time during the First Intifada when the residents of Beit Sahour, in the Occupied West Bank started a dairy collective. This film emphasizes on the ridiculous without losing track of the seriousness of all acts of resistance.
