The Fading Valley
|Synopsis||"In the fertile Jordan Valley there is a group of Palestinian farmers who are hidden from the eye. Their pastures
have been declared military areas, their water wells have been closed up and the water has been diverted to the
Jewish residents of the valley. Without water there is no life – and agriculture is disappearing. Some have given
up and moved to the city. Others have been forced to work in the very settlements that have taken over their own
lands. This film bears witness to the lives of these farmers whose rights have been taken away and who have
become like illegal residents in their own land. These residents are quietly disappearing from the beautiful valley
which is the lowest valley in the world.
