Dir. Shimon Dotan (Israel, 2016, 110 min.)
This two-hour documentary on the history of the Israeli settlements in the West Bank explores the origins of the settlements, the changes they have imposed on Israeli and Palestinian societies, and their impact on Middle Eastern and world affairs. The settlers are associated with xenophobia and religious zealotry. But little is known about the personal beliefs and stories of the settlers themselves.
Director Shimon Dotan’s research has uncovered growing influences on West Bank settlers that include interactions with French and American religious Jews and well organized evangelical Christians. He explores the various forces that shape the lives of the settlers both externally and internally, and immerses himself in their midst to deliver a film “from within.” “This film,” Dotan said, “is an exercise in listening.”
