Fun to watch, serious undertones to pick up on

by Constanze Röhl

“Tel HaEl is an imaginary site. But it's based on real events in the world of archaeology and politics in the West Bank. Although this little animation is a parody featuring a fictional site, it is not so far from the truth. If you are a fan of Indiana Jones or perhaps care about many-faceted archaeological heritage of this land you're welcome to watch and share.”

This is how Emek Shaveh introduces their latest animation short, and actually there is little to add. Information on the pitfalls of science in a contested region and their consequences is being provided spot-on without falling itself into one of the former, namely simply accusing instead of seeking dialogue.

I highly recommend to watch it!
