A young mute woman, living in a small village, is expecting a baby. Her husband is at the same time writing a novel and using the villagers as his characters. In the creative process, reality and imagination are constantly intertwined.
The Wanted 18 (2014) was directed by Paul Cowan and Amer Shomali. It's a documentary with added footage--the 18 cows are animated.
This movie tries to bring some humor into a ghastly situation. A Palestinian village (legally) buys 18 cows from Israel. The venture is a success--the Palestinians have their own milk supply, so they no longer have to buy Israeli milk.
However, the success leads to the downfall of their project, because the Israelis decide that owning cows is illegal, and they start to hunt for them. No matter how hard you try to laugh, in the end you feel like crying. That's the reality of the situation, and it isn't pretty.
We saw this movie in the excellent Little Theatre in Rochester, NY as part of the outstanding Witness Palestine Film Series. It will work well on the small screen.
