this evening (monday), 10.00-11.30pm, on bbc4 tv (freeview channel 9):
Storyville: The Law in These Parts by israeli filmmaker Ra’anan Alexandrowicz
Documentary looking at justice in the land inhabited by Palestinians and captured by Israel in the 1967 war.
The occupation began with the idea that Israel’s presence would be temporary. Israelis dispensed justice through military courts, but these still exist.
The film explores the challenges of administering this military justice system as seen through the eyes of those responsible for doing so.
Do Palestinians receive the same level of justice that they would if they were Israeli citizens? Are these military courts adequate? Israeli authorities have always insisted that they are.
Israeli filmmaker Ra’anan Alexandrowicz interrogates Israeli judges and officials in a haunting and factual film about the quality of justice under the occupation of the West Bank.
