If you’ve ever looked at the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, one of the words that comes up sooner or later is “settlements”. In this groundbreaking documentary, Roger Walters takes a deeper dive into this subject and asks three questions: Who are the settlers? Are they breaking international law? Are settlements an obstacle to peace? The film speaks to people from all sides – Israeli and Palestinian, legal experts, historians, and activists for and against.
Jerusalem is one of the oldest cities on Earth. The center of civilization.

In 1948, a group of World War II pilots volunteered to fight for Israel in the War of Independence. As members of ‘Machal’ — volunteers from abroad — this ragtag band of brothers not only turned the tide of the war, preventing the possible annihilation of Israel at the very moment of its birth; they also laid the groundwork for the Israeli Air Force. ABOVE AND BEYOND is their story. The first major feature-length documentary about the foreign airmen in the War of Independence, ABOVE AND BEYOND brings together new interviews with pilots from the ’48 War, as well as leading scholars and statesmen, including Shimon Peres, to present an extraordinary, little-known tale with reverberations up to the present day.
More than a million Jews were expelled from Arab and Muslim countries between 1948 and 1974 without asking for compensation or the right to return. Pierre Rehov’s Silent Exodus is a tribute to their tragedy.
Did any Arabs save Jews during the Holocaust? That’s the question author Robert Satloff had in mind when he set out to discover the lost, true stories of survival, courage and betrayal in Arab lands during World War II. The history of the Holocaust in Europe is well-documented, but the history of what happened to the Jewish people of North Africa has been mostly forgotten, even in the very towns and cities where it occurred. The truth is remarkable: not only did Jews in Arab lands suffer many of same elements of persecution as Jews in Europe—arrests, deportations, confiscations and forced labor—but there were also hopeful stories of “righteous” Arabs reaching out to protect them.
