Film screening: The law in these parts.

Sunday, August 5, 2012 - 18:30

Can a modern democracy retain its democratic values while imposing a military occupation on another state? This is the question posed by director Ra'anan Alexandrowicz (James' Journey To Jerusalem, MIFF 04) in this, the latest of his meticulously researched documentaries. He zones in on the legal framework behind Israel's occupation of the Palestinian territories, asking some hard questions of the system's architects (military judges and attorneys) in order to justify the laws in light of their consequences. 6:30pm. Greater Union Cinema 5.
