Foragers depicts the drama, joy and pleasures in collecting wild food in occupied Palestine. Shot in the Golan Heights, the Galilee, and Jerusalem, this documentary melds dramatised scenes, reportage and archival footage to portray the impact of Israeli nature protection laws on traditional Palestinian food customs. Following the plants from the wild to the kitchen, from chases with Israeli state forces to the courtroom, this documentary highlights the resilience of Palestinian food culture despite arcane restrictions.
Following the screening there will be a food demo + talk from Dr Sabrin Hasbun, and dinner provided.
At all events we will be selling festival merch, artwork and unique products designed by talented Palestinian creatives. This year all profits will go to Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP). In addition all donations received by BristolPFF, through HeadFirst or at screenings, will be passed directly to MAP.
