Gatekeepers (Shom'ray Ha'Saf)


Nominated for the prestigious Ophir Awards (Israeli Oscars)

As part of JIFF All Year Round, Classic Cinemas is hosting a very special panel event around Dror Moreh’s Academy-Award nominated documentary Gatekeepers.  Inspired by Errol Morris’ Fog of War, Gatekeepers is essential viewing for anyone interested in the politics of war and terrorism.

Join us for a rare glimpse into the untold history of the Palestine-Israeli conflict from the point of view of the Shin Bet, Israel's primary intelligence and counterterrorism agency. Veteran intelligence chiefs Shalom, Yaakov Peri, Carmi Gillon, Ami Ayalon, Avi Dichter and Yuval Diskin discuss their participation in some of Israel's most controversial counterterrorist initiatives and whether the ends justify the means.

Our specialist academic panel includes award-winning writer and philosopher Raimond Gaita (Romulus My Father), Policy Analyst and former Military Correspondent at the IDF Or Avi-Guy and Lecturer in Israel and Middle-Eastern studies Randall Geller. The discussion will be moderated by Mark Baker, author of The Fiftieth Gate and Director of the Australian Centre for Jewish Civilisation.
