“The Wanted 18” by Paul Cowan and Amer Shomali (Palestine, 2014, 75")
When: Dec. 1st, 8 pm. Where: Circolo ARCI Arcobaleno, via Pullino 1, Rome (Metro Garbatella)

Mixing humorous clay-figure animation with live action, the film depicts the power of nonviolent resistance in occupied Palestine. Villagers import 18 cows for their milk, but for Israel they represent a security threat. Ingenuity is the villagers’ re­sponse. The award-winning film, in English, is a poignant account of nation-building from the bottom up: not by the rulers but by the ruled. “Unexpectedly humorous” – The Holly­wood Reporter.  "Mind-opening” – Variety. “An entertaining absurdist satire” – LA Times.

The screening is free, although small donations are welcome and a €7 ARCI card, valid for a year and available on the spot, is required.  It’s all part of the “Eyes Wide Open” Film Series presented by U.S. Citizens for Peace & Justice – Rome.
