The history and lives of Israeli settlers: a potentially explosive topic handled with thoroughness and great intelligence. Ever since Israel won the Six-Day War in 1967, thousands of Israelis have settled in the occupied territories of the West Bank. Whether religious or secular, recently arrived or long-term residents of Israel. The Settlers, directed by Shimon Dotan (Hot House), is a rare look inside the heart of these controversial communities, through both archival and contemporary materials, the better to understand their influence both in Israel and around the world. A selection at Sundance, among other festivals.
