I was very moved by Sharqiya which we just watched on Israeli TV. It
depicts the intolerable situation of the leading characters, a young
Bedouin couple and the husband's brother who live in a shack built on
area which isn't recognized by the Israeli government and for which the
courts have already issued a demolition order.
The Bedouins have lived there for many years but have no papers to
prove ownership. The Israeli government has offered financial
compensation for the land if they agree to move to one of the towns
already built for them in the area but they are emotionally unable to
accept this possibility.
The film is simple but very effective. Congratulations to all the
production team and in particular to the excellent actors portraying
the three leading characters - Ednan Abu Muhrab, Maisa Abd Elhadi and
Ednan Abu Wadi. We can only hope that this tragic situation can be
resolved to the benefit of the Bedouin citizens of the Negev, Israel.
