Sundance Wins for Israeli Film
An Israeli film on the military's legal system in the West Bank was named the best foreign documentary at the Sundance Film Festival.
"The Law in These Parts," which took the World Cinema Grand Jury Prize in Documentary on Jan. 28, features interviews with former Israel Defense Forces legal officials in charge of the army's judicial system in the West Bank. Ra'anan Alexandrowicz, an Israeli, directed the film.
"Five Broken Cameras," a joint Palestinian, Israeli and French production, won the World Cinema Documentary directing award. Co-directed by Palestinian filmmaker Emad Burnat and Israeli filmmaker Guy Davidi, fhe film is an account of the weekly protests in Bil'in against Israeli's security barrier.
