Beyond the Green Line

Everyone who cares about Israel should see Shimon Dotan’s The Settlers, a documentary that examines who the settlers are and where the settlement movement is going.

A great many people on both the right and the left of the political spectrum have strong feelings about the settlers, but I wonder how many of these people know the history of the settlement movement in depth.

The Settlers is an ambitious film, and Dotan manages to cover a great deal of ground during the film’s approximately 105-minute running time. Dotan, whose resume includes Hollywood action movies as well as documentaries, draws upon his background to tell the story with the intensity of a feature-film drama.
