DRYING UP PALESTINE


Directed by | Peter Snowdon & Rima Essa

Genre documentary  |  Length: 28mins  |  Year of production: 2007


The question of access to, and control over, water is an intrinsic part of the Palestine Israel conflict. This short documentary offers a portrait of the stresses and strains imposed on Palestinian society by Israel's exercise of exclusive control over water and sewage infrastructures in the West Bank. Told through the testimonies of ordinary people, the film highlights the effects of a militarily enforced regime of resource theft, and revels the ecological, human, and political costs of failing to address this core issue.
