Israel detains over 10,000 Palestinian prisoners. They are deemed "security prisoners" by the Israeli government, but, to many in the Palestinian world, they are viewed as leaders and martyrs for the crimes they have committed against innocent people. While some of the prisoners have renounced violence in favor of peace, many others are as dedicated to their causes as the day they were incarcerated and are creating virtual terrorist training camps within the prison's walls in this candid and unflinching documentary from acclaimed filmmaker Shimon Dotan (The Settlers).

Press Quotes

Shimon Dotan's absorbing look at Palestinians held in Israeli jails, is full of remarkable interviews.

     —Neil Genzlinger, The New York Times

Stark, face-to-face interviews with convicted terrorists yield a disquieting portrait of a community that, despite or even because of its shackles, remains fervently committed to its cause.

     —Justin Chang, Variety

Given the glut of films about the area, then, it is all the more commendable that director Shimon Dotan has found a fresh angle - and one that offers a unique insight.

     —Amber Wilkinson, Eye For Film

There's a lot of powerful footage in the film, revealing the startling simplicity with which many of the prisoners view their actions.

     —Jeremy Mathews, Film Threat
