The Israeli military occupation of the Palestinian territories has lasted 54 years, and there is seemingly no end in sight. Working with testimonies given by soldiers in the Israeli army, Avi Mograbi provides insights on how a colonialist occupation functions, using Israel’s occupation of the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and Gaza Strip as a case study.

Showing as part of Sheffield DocFest on tour. This special screening will be followed by a 30 minute pre-recorded Q&A.
