Directed by Shimon Dotan, “The Settlers” is a documentary combining history and headlines on the controversial Israeli settlement movement, beginning from 1967 to today. Hundreds of thousands of settlers have made homes in the Occupied Territories and their presence makes a peace agreement with the Palestinians infinitely more complex.
This is the first comprehensive look at the meeting point, where radicals, idealists, messianic fanatics, true believers and political opportunists, living on the fault lines of an age-old conflict, come face to face with history itself.
“A rare window into the reclusive and politically explosive ‘hilltop youth’ movement."
New York Times
“Dotan’s shots capture both the beauty of the West Bank and the complexity of the geopolitics that are tragically tearing it apart.”
The Settlers will open March 3rd at the Film Forum and March 17th at the Laemmle Monica in Los Angeles, CA
