The Law in These Parts

Join Temple B’nai Brith for a Film Night, featuring “The Law in These Parts.”

An unique exploration of the evolving and little-known legal framework that Israel has employed to administer its 50-year military occupation of the West Bank and until 2005, the Gaza Strip. Celebrated Israeli filmmaker Ra’anan Alexandrowicz interviews the military judges, prosecutors and legal advisors who helped to create the system, and who explain their choices. He weaves together these interviews with archival footage, often in the same frame, to craft a comprehensive and evocative portrait. In doing so, “The Law in These Parts” illuminates not only the legal architecture of military occupation but also its human impact on both Palestinians and on Israelis. Not Rated, 101 minutes. (Description adapted from PBS)
