Mark Kaplan on his doc about a forest funded by SA Jews that covers a Palestinian village

Mark Kaplan talks about his documentary The Village Under The Forest about a former Palestinian village covered by a forest paid for by South African Jews. The interview covers: how the former Palestinian village became part of a forest created by the Jewish National Fund; how a group of South Africans found out what the money raised from South African Jews was being used for, which led to the documentary being made; the history of the village; talking to both sides about the history of the village; where the movie will be shown; the idea of Memoricide; and the work of Zochrot.
