After conquering the West Bank and the Gaza Strip in 1967, the Israeli army imposed thousands of orders, laws, and 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. Click here to watch the trailer.
