Dror Moreh is a talented and important filmmaker whose documentary ‘The Gatekeepers’ sheds a profound light on Israel’s history and the seemingly intractable struggle with its Palestinian neighbors.
The film’s narrators are all six living heads of Israel’s internal security service, Shin Bet. Their testimony is brave and chilling.
Moreh took inspiration from another of our favorite muckrakers, Errol Morris and ‘The Fog of War’ his interview film with former US Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara.
Now, Moreh’s Israeli version of ‘The Fog of War’ is opening in America, and it is sure to impact all who deign to give themselves a cold bath of expertly told truth.
The Gatekeepers is open now in New York and Los Angeles and it’s opening soon in Boston, Chicago and Washington, DC.
