On 13 December, the Graduate Gender Programme (GGeP) at Utrecht University is organising a film screening of the 2022 film Foragers, directed by Jumana Manna.
Wild plants like za’atar and akoub are key ingredients of the Palestinian cuisine. The film Foragers explores the dramas around harvesting these plants, a practice banned by Israeli laws under the pretext of environmental preservation. Filmed across the Golan heights, Galilee, and Jerusalem, the film utilises a mix of fictional storytelling and documentary footage to capture the resilience of such an affirmative practice, and in the face of laws that prohibit it.
