Watch PICKLES, INC. on Global Voices on PBS WORLD

Posted on October 2, 2009
"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 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. PICKLES, INC. airs Sunday, October 4 at 10:00 PM on Global Voices on PBS WORLD (check local listings). After watching PICKLES, INC., you might just feel inspired to make pickles at home. Try out this favorite recipe of ITVS staffer Joy-Marie Scott––pickled okra, a Texan classic created by Lady Bird Johnson. Get the recipe >> Looking for something inspired from the Middle East?
