A film and food event to raise funds for this year’s Leeds Palestinian Film Festival so we can show lots more great films. Please come and support us! We’ll serve Middle Eastern food and show one of our favourite Palestinian films, The Wanted 18.
This winning mix of documentary and clay-animation offers an unexpectedly humorous account of a West Bank town’s experience of the first Intifada, a subject that doesn’t usually generate a lot of laughs in cinema. It recounts the true story of how the Palestinian neighbourhood of Beit Sahour near Bethlehem acquired a herd of 18 dairy cows and then had to hide them from the Israeli security forces when their existence was absurdly deemed a threat to national security.
Tickets £10 or pay-as-you-can – includes Middle Eastern buffet
