France, Israel | 2016 | Shimon Dotan
This important and acclaimed new documentary takes an in-depth look at some of the many Israeli citizens who have built homes and communities in the occupied West Bank—complicating the nation’s ongoing Palestinian conflict and jeopardizing the two-state solution that many seek. The film also looks at the religious and political roots of the settler movement, going back to Israel’s founding in 1948 and to its acquisition of substantial Arab territories after 1967’s Six-Day War. “Extraordinary!” –Amy Goodman, Democracy Now! “Everyone who cares about Israel should see Shimon Dotan's The Settlers.” –The Jerusalem Post. Subtitles. Blu-ray. 107 min.
