Blending documentary, fiction, and archival footage, Foragers depicts the dramas between the Israeli Nature Protection Authority and Palestinians who forage for wild edible plants. The INPA says they prohibit the collection of these plants as part of their duty to protect, while the Palestinians feel these laws are designed to further alienate them from their land. Tracing the plants from the wild to the kitchen, Foragers uses a wry sense of humour and a meditative pace to capture the inherited love, resilience, and knowledge of these traditions, over an eminently political backdrop.
Screening as part of the Take One Action Film Festival, this hybrid film looks to reframe the terms and constraints of preservation, raising questions around politics of extinction, namely who determines what is made extinct and what gets to live.
“Including some unexpected humor, Manna’s gentle approach is more poetic meditation than commercial nonfiction.” Variety
