Film: The Gatekeepers

May 13, 2013 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


An Oscar nominee for Best Documentary Feature, this compelling film offers a unique and eye-opening perspective on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. Director Moreh persuaded all six living former heads of Shin Bet (Israel’s secret service) to speak publicly for the first time about their experiences. Responding to Moreh’s tough questions with remarkable candor, they offer both a gripping inside view of counterterrorist operations (against Jewish as well as Palestinian extremists) and a far-reaching critique of Israeli policies. The six men display vividly different, complex personalities but are unanimous in their belief in a two-state solution as the only possible way out of a situation in which, as one of them says, “We win every battle, but we lose the war.” In Hebrew with English subtitles. 35mm.
