Benefiting from unprecedented access with the pioneers of the movement of colonization and from the current, religious and secular colonists, filmmaker Shimon Dotan offers an eye-opening history of Israeli settlements in the West Bank and their relentless growth over the past fifty years

Since the decisive victory of Israel during the Six-Day War in 1967, hundreds of thousand Israeli citizens settled down in the occupied territories of the West Bank. Benefiting from unprecedented access with the pioneers of the movement of colonization and from the current, religious and secular colonists, The Settlers is an in-depth exploration of these communities. Filmmaker Shimon Dotan lays out the facts with extraordinary care and lucidity, and allows us to see the progression of actions and reactions that led to the current volatile situation, one small step at a time. (USA, 2017, 106 min., PG, English | Dir. Shimon Dotan)
