Description

Since the end of the Six-Day War in 1967, hundreds of thousands of Israeli citizens have moved into the Occupied Territories of the West Bank. Delving deeper than daily headlines and nightly newscasts, popular Doc Soup selection The Settlers offers an intimate look at the rise of these controversial settlements, and the historical, political and religious implications they have had on peace in the Middle East. With archival footage and unprecedented access, director Shimon Dotan connects with key pioneers of the movement as well as more critical voices from within Israel, including professors and government officials and human rights activists. Comprehensive and compelling, The Settlers outlines the current volatile situation and the challenges facing the future of Israel and Palestine.
