We No Longer Prefer Mountains explores the particular political and social condition of the Druze minority in northern Palestine. Through open, one-to-one exchanges, often spoken directly to the camera, the protagonists of the film share their lived experience of the policies that were implemented to divide them from the larger indigenous community. 

Beginning with an ascent of Mount Carmel, upon which the Druze towns of Dalyet el Carmel and Isfiya are located, drawing the viewer into a world of geographic isolation and a locale shaped by coercion and control, the film explores how the inner politics of the Druze have been reconfigured and reshaped since 1948.
