Coming Soon to POV: The Law in These Parts

by |

“Compelling and provocative … a brilliantly complex film.”
— Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

The Law in These Parts premieres August 19, 2013 at 10 PM on PBS stations. (Check local listings.)

In The Law in These Parts, acclaimed Israeli filmmaker Ra’anan Alexandrowicz has pulled off a tour-de-force examination of the system of military administration used by Israel since the Six Day War of 1967 — featuring the system’s leading creators. In a series of thoughtful and candid interviews, Israeli judges, prosecutors and legal advisers, who helped devise the occupation’s legal framework, paint a complex picture of the Middle East conflict and the balance among political interests, security and human rights that has come with it. Winner, World Cinema Jury Prize: Documentary, 2012 Sundance Film Festival.

After the broadcast, you can visit the The Law in These Parts companion site to download a discussion guide, view annotated documents and other resources, and find out what’s happened since the cameras stopped rolling.
