The Settlers

shimon Dotan / Israel / 2016 / 110 mins / Hebrew, Arabic, English with English subtitles / Documentary

“The real achievement here is in going beyond the buzzwords of newscasts and talking points to convey a sense of what’s happening on the ground — and to give it a sense of urgency.” VARIETY

Moving beyond what is reported in the news, The Settlers offers an intimate compilation of the lives and experiences of the people occupying one of the world’s most contested regions: Israel’s West Bank territory. Grappling with notions of land occupation and ownership, this provocative documentary impresses the complexity of the region, allowing comprehensive access to the Jewish settlers and their Palestinian counterparts. Presenting a nuanced blend of interviews, historical context and archival footage, this powerful film challenges preconceptions, giving voice
to opinions from both sides of a contentious issue.
