The Third Annual SCREENING SCHOLARSHIP MEDIA FESTIVAL #SSMF2015 will open with a screening of 'The Law in These Parts' followed by a talk back with director Ra'anan Alexandrowicz.
Admission is free and open to public!
The Law in These Parts (2011) unravels the intricate system of military control that undergirds one of the most enduring and damaging conflicts of our time. Through interviews with the Israeli Judges, prosecutors, and legal advisors who created the legal framework of Israel's control of the West Bank and Gaza Strip, the film reveals the logic and reasoning behind the architecture of the occupation. Investigating the legal processes of establishing settlements in an occupied area, dealing with torture in interrogations, and rationalizing parallel legal systems for Palestinians and Israelis, the film explores some of Israel's basic moral quandaries.
Ra’anan Alexandrowicz lives and works in Jerusalem, Israel. He teaches film at the Sam Spiegel Film and Television School and has served as a directing advisor for the Sundance Documentary Film Program. His latest documentary film, The Law in These Parts, won several distinguished awards internationally, including: the Sundance 2012 International Documentary Grand Jury Award; a 2013 Peabody Award; and Hot Docs 2012 International Competition Jury. Ra'anan's earlier films include the fiction feature James’s Journey to Jerusalem (2003), and the documentaries The Inner Tour (2001) and Martin (1999).
