Pickles, Inc., Sunday on Global Voices

Posted on August 11, 2012

The documentary Pickles, Inc. by filmmakers Dalit Kimor and Nitza Gonen airs Sunday, August 12 on Global Voices on the WORLD Channel.


In the Israeli Arab village of Tamra, in Galilee, eight widows challenge social conventions and establish the Azka Pickle Cooperative, seeking financial independence for themselves and their children. With little formal education and no work experience outside of the home, the women face endless hurdles in expanding their business start-up–while their personal lives reflect the joys and sadness of family weddings, bereavement, and loneliness.

“There are those who venture into a start-up business to make some extra cash, and then there are those who do so to survive… Pickles, Inc. evokes an I-can-do-anything mentality after watching the unlikely entrepreneurs succeed.” - Media Life Magazine


Pickles, Inc. will air as part of the Global Voices series on the WORLD Channel, Sunday, August 12 at 10 p.m. (check local listings). Starting August 13, the documentary will be available to view in entirety online via PBS Video (for a limited time only).
