SYNOPSIS

The Law In These Parts explores this unprecedented and little-known story through testimonies of the military legal professionals who were the architects of the system and helped run it in its formative years. The film attempts to ask some crucial questions that are often skirted or avoided: Can such an occupation be achieved within a legal framework that includes genuine adherence to the principles of rule-of-law? Should it? What are the costs that a society engaged in such a long term exercise must bear? And what are the implications of the very effort to make a documentary film about such a system?

Outreach Work Supported

Outreach to educators and legal professionals, and creation of online educational resources around the themes of the film.

have said

"The Law in These Parts'' more than accomplishes its goal of provoking a discussion about imposing laws on people who have no say in making them.

New York Post

By keeping its focus admirably tight, the sober and sobering Israeli documentary "The Law in These Parts" presents a devastating case against the occupation of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.
