Fourth Friday Film – “The Wanted 18” (cows!)

The Wanted 18Something a little different this week – no war and destruction – no disastrous executive order from the White House – no ultra right wing conservative nominee for the Supreme Court.  No, just a bunch of cows!
 
The Peace & Justice Center presents “The Wanted 18.”  This film 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 response to the Israeli occupation of the West Bank, a group of people from a small town  decide to buy 18 cows and produce their own milk as a co-operative. Their venture is so successful that the collective farm becomes a landmark, and the cows local celebrities—until the Israeli army takes note and declares that the farm is an illegal security threat. Consequently, the dairy is forced to go underground, the cows continuing to produce their “Intifada milk” with the Israeli army in relentless pursuit.  A rather comical insight into very serious politics.
 
Palestinian artist Amer Shomali and veteran Canadian director Paul Cowan create an enchanting, inspirational tribute to the ingenuity and power of grassroots activism. “The Wanted 18″ shows Friday, March 24, 7:00 p.m. at The Open Book (next to Sierra Mtn. Coffee Roasters) 671 Maltman Drive, Grass Valley. Come enjoy the film, and stay for the discussion to follow. $6.00-$10.00 suggested donation . Beverages and treats available for purchase.
