How did 18 cows owned by Palestinians during the First Intifada become “a threat to the national security of the state of Israel”? This funny, whimsical mix of claymation and documentary details an absurdist, stranger-than-fiction 1987 episode that saw the Israeli army hunting for a herd of hidden dairy cows that Palestinians in the town of Beit Sahour had purchased and raised in order to avoid buying Israeli milk. “Beautiful and important and very strange.” –Village Voice.
