CinemaNA – The Wanted 18, Mundo, Terça, 06. Março 2018

A contemporary Arab cinema series presented by the NYUAD Film and New Media Program in partnership with The Arts Center and Paris-Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi.

The Wanted 18
At Paris-Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi – Directed by Amer Shomali and Paul Cowan

Through a clever mix of stop-motion animation and interviews, The Wanted 18 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.”


Biography
Amer Shomali is a Palestinian multidisciplinary artist that uses painting, films, digital media, installations, and comics as tools to explore and interact with the sociopolitical scene in Palestine. Much of Shomali’s work examines the creation and the use of the Palestinian revolution’s iconography. His artworks are part of several collections: The British Museum, the Museum of Manufactured Response to Absence (MoMRtA), Birzeit University Museum, Al-Qattan Foundation; Shomali co-directed the award-winning animated documentary, The Wanted 18, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2014. The film was awarded the best documentary award in Abu Dhabi, Carthage, Traverse City, and Al-Jazeera Film Festivals.
