The YES Docu channel is celebrating 10 years, and it’s been a great decade for documentaries, with many outstanding Israeli documentaries premiering on the channel over the years.
Television channels like YES Docu around the world have been helpful in building audiences for documentaries, particularly those on serious or controversial subjects.
One such film that is premiering on the channel on May 27 at 9 p.m. is Nili Tal’s Etched in My Body, a documentary about Goel Ratzon, the leader of a polygamous cultlike family. We are accustomed to hearing about such cults among Mormons, but this one was right here in Israel. Ratzon is now in prison, after he was sentenced last year to a 30-year sentence for rape, incest and other crimes against his wives and daughters.
