"Shimon Dotan's film is a distinctly important addition to the study of Israel's policies and practices in the occupied Palestinian territories. Documenting the development of the settlement project, it debunks many of the narratives commonly used to explain the ongoing conflict between Israelis and Palestinians. Although it will undoubtedly provoke many contentious discussions, the facts it reveals are not only vital to the pursuit of justice and peace but are also the hallmark of great documentary work.”
- Yinon Cohen, Professor of Israel & Jewish Studies


"A compelling, must-see, tour de force."

"Everyone who cares about Israel should see Shimon Dotan's THE SETTLERS."
