Event Date
3pm EDT / 12 noon PDT

In this Emmy Award winning documentary, directors Rachel Leah Jones and Philippe Bellaiche illuminate the work of Lea Tsemel, a Jewish-Israeli human rights lawyer who has dedicated her life to representing Palestinian political prisoners in Israeli courts. Her defense of Palestinians who resist occupation has earned her a reputation among Zionists as "the devil's advocate," but to most others she is known for her adherence to the law and human rights. Lea believes in the potential of law as a tool to bring about justice. Of the work she says, “I can’t do anything else. I believe in it.”
