In historical Palestine, foraging for wild ‘akkoub and za’atar – traditional foods that Palestinians have gathered from the land for generations – is punishable by fines and imprisonment. Threading together fiction, documentary, and archival footage, Foragers reveals how Israeli legislation in the name of natural conservation constitutes yet another means of separating Palestinians from their land – and of deciding which lives are worthy of protection. Spellbinding and utterly transportative, 'Foragers' examines food as a living terrain for omnipresent settler colonial violence, but also unassailable Palestinian resistance.

Plus short film: 'Coming Home' (Margot Bowman/Naim Naif, USA, 2022, English/Arabic, 10min)

BEYOND THE SCREEN:

Join us after the film for a special spoken word performance exploring land and belonging by Scottish-Palestinian writer, singer and actor Amira Al-Shanti, followed by a conversation about channeling solidarity with Palestine in Scotland. The introduction, spoken word performance and post-screening conversation will have BSL interpretation.

Content notes:

Depictions of settler colonialism and state oppression.

Access notes:

Mainly bright images; mix of explanatory dialogue (in Arabic and Hebrew) and visual storytelling; some mildly abrasive sounds; some flashing images at the start and end of the film.
