Since the decisive victory of Israel during the Six-Day War in 1967, hundreds of thousands of Israeli citizens settled down in the occupied territories of the West Bank. The Settlers cracks open the world of Jewish settlers in the occupied West Bank: their daily lives, their worldviews, and their position within Israel. With uninhibited access, the film captures the casual zealotry, racism, and untroubled certainty of many settlers in this contentious and controversial space. The existence and development of Israeli settlements in the West Bank is complex and elusive, and increasingly wild and tragic. Along with personal profiles, Dotan unpacks the history of the settlements, laying out the facts with extraordinary care and lucidity, to allow us to see the progression of actions and reactions that have led to the current volatile situation.
