New Israeli documentary looks at bizarre world of Israeli law in West Bank, other parts of future Palestinian state [PRI]

For his protagonists, Alexandrowicz chose the legal professionals – retired military judges, advocates and advisers – who wrote, shaped and implemented a legal system for Israeli-occupied lands. Alexandrowicz did extensive studio interviews with his subjects. And then cleverly interspersed these with archival material from the occupied territories, including scenes with some of his main characters.

There’s one poignant scene with army judge Jonathan Livny, shot in a military courtroom during the first intifada.

“I realize that I’m sent to the West Bank by the Israeli flag. To the people who sit here, opposite it, view it as the flag as the enemy and I represent that flag,” Livny said. “But on the other hand, the other symbol, which is even higher than the flag, are the scales of justice. And I always say that I would like to be able, and I hope I can always love my country as represented by the flag and still love justice. And still uphold justice.”

“The public perception is that most of this has to do with security,” Alexandrowicz said.
