Documentary film: You don’t choose to be a potter in Hebron – since time out of mind, this calling has been passed down from father to son. Many have abandoned the craft over the last few decades – although the products have diversified and orders are on the increase. Due to local taxation and transportation problems between the Palestinian territories and Israel the profession is becoming less and less viable.
