Acclaimed Israeli filmmaker Ra’anan Alexandrowicz pulls off a tour-de-force examination of the system of military administration used by Israel since the Six Day War of 1967 — featuring the system’s leading creators. In a series of thoughtful and candid interviews, Israeli judges, prosecutors and legal advisers, who helped devise the occupation’s legal framework, paint a complex picture of the Middle East conflict and the balance among political interests, security and human rights that has come with it. POV: The Law in These Parts airs Monday, August 19, 2013 at 10 p.m. on WXXI-TV.
