The Palestinian Galilee village of Ramia, one of many unrecognised Palestinian villages in the state of Israel, has been entirely engulfed by the Jewish Israeli town of Carmiel, established upon the village's land in 1964. This film, by the Palestinian Israeli socialist/activist Video '48 Collective, chronicles the efforts of the authorities to deny the existence of the village, refusing its population municipal services as part of an attempt to drive them from their home. The film also represents a testimony to the ongoing resistance of the people of Ramia and their refusal to be complicit in their eradication.
