Bedouin shepherd communities who live in the magical spaces of the Jordan Valley have to deal with a variety of pressures and threats.

Docaviv 2024: Beyond The Screen Competition: Honorable Mention:
Jury Statement:

''Activist documentary needs to work on many levels to be poignant, timely, important and revealing. To provide a window into a world of what is never seen - especially when dealing with injustice and racism. It will leave viewers angry and conflicted. In this case we witness unfiltered adversity, questioning what it means to be Jewish, the role of the State and whether one is able to ignore what they see and look the other way. This documentary has great storytelling at its core. It forces viewers to think, challenge, and go ‘beyond the screen’ 'The Shepherd's Keeper' deserves to be recognized with an honorable mention.''
