Fifty Years Later

Al-Araqeeb
A documentary observing the fortunes of the Al-Araqarqeeb , a village that has been already destroyed 111 times. The Bedouin settlement was needed for military training, so the army ordered its evacuation in 1951.

The village is being repeatedly demolished by the state of Israel since 2010.  The struggle between the state and its citizens continues.
