Jordan Valley Blues

A LifeSource film, Jordan Valley Blues documents the lives and losses of the Palestinian farmers in the Jordan Valley, where they are forced to abandon their land due to water shortages and abuses by the Israeli military. While one man becomes and entrepreneur, another becomes an illegal worker in Israel. LifeSource also tells the story of an Israeli settler who provides 35 jobs to a starving Palestinian community in the area. This documentary follows the life of a town that is forced to export the majority of its goods in an attempt to survive. Following the film there will be a short presentation by Rebecca Cutter, M.A. Sustainable Development and a Q&A with two workers, Hmaza Zubeidat and Christopher Whitman, from the MA’AN Development Center, a training center for women and youth.
