Leonard Wolfson Auditorium, Wolfson College, Linton Road, Oxford, OX2 6UD
This revealing documentary investigates the justice of the legal system in the Occupied Palestinian Territories through interviews with the architects of this military legal system juxtaposed with historical footage. It provides a rare opportunity to ponder the banality of (judicial) evil; of lawyers as the willing executioners of power.
The Law In These Parts has won the World Cinema Grand Jury Prize in Documentary at the Sundance Film Festival (2012), the Special Jury Prize in the International Feature Competition at Hot Docs Festival in Canada (2012), and the Special Jury Award in the Full Frame Documentary Festival (2012).
This free film night will be the first screening to make use of the state-of-the art audiovisual capabilities at the new Leonard Wolfson Auditorium. The film will be followed by a discussion of the issues raised with Ruvi Ziegler, Reading, and Catriona Drew, SOAS, and audience Q&A hosted by Amir Paz-Fuchs, Associate Research Fellow at the Centre for Socio-Legal Studies and Visiting Scholar at the Oxford Centre for Hebrew and Jewish Studies.
