ALL THAT REMAINS


Directed by | Nada el Yassir

Genre documentary  |  Length: 52mins  |  Year of production: 2005


Palestinian Arab Bedouins once peopled the entire Naqab (Negev) Desert, a region which accounts for 60% of historic Palestine. With the creation of Israel in 1948, the majority of these Palestinians were uprooted. Those who remain are either being forcibly concentrated within one of seven designated townships or, if they refuse to abandon their lifestyle and economy, end up living in one of 46 “unrecognized villages” lacking water, electricity, schools, roads or medical services. Nada El Yassir’s powerful documentary explores the struggle of these Bedouins of the Naqab against Israeli policies that aim to strip them of their land and their way of life.
