video: "siddiqine's harvest"

[de] [es] [it] [fr]
this short movie is a result of an activist video workshop in the village of siddiqine, south lebanon.

in the course of the war, more than half the village got destroyed by the israeli army. but more than on the destruction, the film tries to show the implications the war had for the local tobacco agriculture. on one hand people couldn't harvest the tobacco leaves right in time so the plants dried out, on the other hand the contamination of south lebanon with cluster bombs stops people from reaching their fields.
