The Law in These Parts plus Panel
Dir. Ra’anan Alexandrowicz | Israel 2012 | Documentary | Hebrew with English subtitles | 101 mins
Winner, World Cinema Jury Prize, Sundance Film Festival, 2012
The Law in These Parts is more than a stark interrogation of the legal proceedings in the Occupied Territories since 1967. This rigorous film also tears apart the very notion of documentary. Intricate, direct interviews with lawmakers and military personnel are interspersed with excerpts from previous documentaries, which have each grappled with the aim of neutrality. By prying apart the process of a country as occupier, The Law in These Parts is at once both incredibly illuminating, and quietly startling.
