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.
Dotan divides that society into two groups: the radical religious settlers and everyone else. In his view, it is those religious settlers living over the Green Line — who are dragging the rest of Israel into the conflict.
Director Shimon Dotan’s hero: Michael Moore.
Screening followed by Q&A w Gershom Gorenberg
