Opening Film The Wanted 18
For our opening night, Leila Shahid and Dominique Vidal will be present to debate: Which Levers to Pull for Peace in the Israeli - Palestinian conflict? following the film screening of Canadian-Palestinian documentary The Wanted 18.
Co-directed by Paul Cowan & Amer Shomali, the film uses a mix of interviews, archival footage and stop-motion to bring to life the story of the first dairy in Beit Sahour near Bethlehem in the West Bank, during the First Intifada.  

The actions of this small Palestinian village which bought 18 cows and stopped buying Israeli milk shows the power of grassroots activism, peaceful resistance and courage in a part of the world that is fraught with negative imagery and despair.

It had its world premiere at the 2014 Toronto Film Festival and has now travelled the world over. Among the awards it has received are Best Documentary from the Arab World at the Abu Dhabi Film Festival as well as Best Documentary at the Montreal International Documentary Festival and Carthage Film Festival.

The film is Palestine's official submission to the Oscars 2016 in the category of Best Foreign Language Film.
