The Gatekeepers

Special Film Screening

Nominated for Best Documentary for the 85th Academy Awards

Thursday, January 24, 2013 at 7:00pm


Charged with overseeing Israel’s war on terror-both Palestinian and Jewish- the head of the Shin Bet, Israel’s secret service is present at the crossroad of every decision made.

For the first time ever six former heads of the agency agreed to share their insights and reflect publicly on their actions and decisions. THE GATEKEEPERS offers an exclusive account of the sum of their success and failures. It validates the reasons that each man individually and the six as a group came to reconsider their hard-line positions and advocate a conciliatory approach toward their enemies based on a two-state solution.

Q & A with Director Dror Moreh following the screening.
