In Hebrew, the process of harvesting olives is called "Masik". Traditionally, it is a process of shaking and beating the ripeolive tree, at  the beginning of winter, in
order to collect the olives that fall from it.
Here a machine is sh work, Palestinian workers are engaged in harvesting olives in the grove of kibbutz
Revivim. The young workers are wielding the sticks; their movements choreograph a fierce ritualistic dance around the trees – a hunt, almost a pursuit. Their dark faces are
covered to protect them from the dust, and this casts a menacing air. Nets are spread on to the ground, to catch the falling olives.
This olive harvest takes a turn that is quite distinct from mere documentary. The nets on the ground transform the olives into prey (excerpts from a text by Diane Watteau, May 2012).
