A series of nine shorts, dramas and documentaries made jointly by Palestinian and Israeli filmmakers and crews. Created by Tel Aviv University, the project called on nine young filmmakers to tell stories related to what is the source of all possibilities, the primordial nucleus of all things, “Water”. The series artistic director and Tel Aviv University Film Professor Yael Perlov said: “we are very happy with the results because they prove that collaboration between Israelis and Palestinians is possible, at least in the arts.” Series highlights include Ahmad Barguthi’s documentary “Kareem’s Pool” and “Now and Forever”, by Tal Haring.
