This compelling, provocative and insightful documentary focuses on Shin Bet, the Israeli intelligence agency, which since the Six Day War in 1967, has been at the forefront of intelligence operations in the occupied territories of the West Bank and Gaza. In an extraordinary coup, filmmaker Dror Moreh interviewed six of the heads of Shin Bet and each share their insights into the troubled Israeli-Palestine relationship and reflect publicly on their actions and decisions. Moreh was inspired to make the film after watching the Academy award winning documentary “The Fog Of War”. Along with archival footage, the interviews make a powerful and moving account of Israel’s troubled history.
