“The Law in These Parts” Movie Showing
August 20, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Conquering the West Bank and Gaza Strip in 1967, the Israeli army imposed a justice system unique in the world: thousands of orders and laws, military courts, hundreds of thousands of sentences, while moving over 500,000 Jewish “settlers” into the Territories in violation of international law. With archival footage and first-ever interviews with the prosecutors, legal advisors, and the judges who created the framework, The Law in These Parts unravels the intricate system of control that accompanies one of the most enduring and damaging conflicts of our time and sustains it. Can a nation that occupies another people act with principles that adhere to the rule-of-law? Winner: Best Documentary, Jerusalem Film Festival, 2011 and World Cinema Grand Jury Prize in Documentary, Sundance, 2012.
The Film will be shown on Wednesday, August 16 at 7:30 pm and Sunday, August 20th at 2:00 pm in Bemis Hall, 15 Bedford Rd., Lincoln, MA in the basement screening room.
This event is sponsored by the GRALTA Foundation.
