Two documentary films about Israel/Palestine are in the news right now because they are both up for an Oscar award for best documentary film.
Five Broken Cameras was made by two men, one Israeli and one Palestinian, and tells the story of non-violent resistance in the West Bank village of Bilin to the Israeli separation barrier and the growing Israeli settlements infringing on their daily lives. See an interview with Christine Amanpour with the film makers.
The Gatekeepers captures the stories of the 6 living past directors of the Shin Bet, the Israeli Secret police, and their warnings to the state of Israel that the current path of occupation and expanding Israeli settlements will not lead to peace but perpetual struggle.
