NJ PREMIERE
DOCUMENTARY
Directors: Philippe Bellaiche, Racheal Leah Jones 2019, 114 minutes Israel, Canada, Switzerland / Arabic, Hebrew, English
For five decades, Israeli lawyer Lea Tsemel has defended Palestinians charged with a range of crimes. Now, she and her team are representing Ahmad, a 13-year-old implicated in a knife attack in Jerusalem. He, like other Palestinians charged with serious crimes, will face an unfair trial in a country where, Tsemel says, the government, court system, and media are stacked against him. To many, Tsemel is a traitor who defends the indefensible; to others, she’s a true champion of human rights.

WINNER
Best Israeli Film, 2019 DocAviv Film Festival • Best Feature-Length • Documentary, 2019 Krakow Film Festival Documentary, 2019 Hong Kong International Film Festival

This film is brought to you by Lynn and Lowell Jacobs
