Dirty Business

ShortOther | 2015 | 15 min.
Directed by: Vadim Dumesh

Short documentary 'Dirty Business' follows the traditional coal industry scattered around Israel and the West Bank, and sheds light on economic relations between the two sides.

"Given the situation between Israel and Palestine as we know it, it is hard to imagine how much the two territories rely on each other economically. Vadim Dumesh’s film focuses on this exact angle, more specifically on the trade in citrus trees for making charcoal in the Jenin region. A well-researched and essential work." - Visions Du Reel
