Winner of the Documentary Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival, and executive produced by investigative filmmaker and journalist Laura Poitras, “The Law In These Parts” is a gripping and revelatory investigation into the military legal system put in place by Israel over four decades ago to govern the occupied Palestinian territories – the repercussions of which are felt to this day by both sides. In his rave review for the LA Times, Kenneth Turan called it "Fascinating. A Brilliantly complex film. The second superb Israeli documentary (after 'The Gatekeepers') to deal fearlessly with an aspect of that country's legal and political system."

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: By keeping its focus admirably tight, the sober and sobering Israeli documentary "The Law in These Parts" presents a devastating case against the occupation of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.
Fresh: Adopting a postmodern method quite different from that of his remarkable The Inner Tour, Ra'anan Alexandrowicz poses his questions from a legal angle, and finds these minds stumped by a system they've professionally defended.
Fresh: This may sound like a dry, legalistic endeavor, but the result will surprise you.
Fresh: The Law in These Parts applies a cold anger to one of the geopolitical world's most passionate discords.
