Through archival footage and interviews with Israeli military judges, prosecutors and legal advisors, The Law In These Parts (Israel, 2012, 101 min) directed by Ra'anan Alexandrowicz unravels an intricate system of military control that symbolizes one of the most enduring and damaging conflicts of our time. The legal framework of Israel’s occupation of the Palestinian territories is revealed in painstaking and precise detail by its architects. From establishing settlements in an occupied area to dealing with torture in interrogations to rationalizing parallel legal systems for Palestinians and Israelis, The Law in These Parts explores some of Israel's basic moral quandaries. DIRECTOR RA'ANAN ALEXANDROWICZ WILL BE PRESENT FOR A Q&A.
