Palestinian Bedouins have lived on their ancestral land for centuries. Defined by their nomadic and agricultural traditions, they have worked hard to keep their way of life alive—something that has become increasingly difficult. With the creation of Israel in 1948, most Bedouins were forced from their homeland. Today, a small number of Bedouin people remain on the land, despite the obstacles the Israeli military have put into place to force them out. Without running water, permits to build permanent structures, or the ability to find work in their communities, the Bedouin people don’t have a lot of options to make ends meet. But one option they do have is to smuggle Palestinian workers across the southern border with Israel, the only place where Israel’s border wall has yet to reach. Following some of these Bedouin smugglers as they risk their freedom and their lives to feed their families, THE DEVIL’S DRIVERS captures the desperation and resilience of a long-oppressed group of people who have nowhere else to turn. —G.S.
