Documentary, 2019, Israel
Lea Tsemel defends Palestinians from feminists to fundamentalists, from non-violent demonstrators to armed militants. As a Jewish-Israeli lawyer who has represented political prisoners for nearly 50 years, Tsemel, in her tireless quest for justice, pushes the praxis of a human rights defender to its limits. Advocate, an engrossing documentary portrait of Tsemel, premiered at the 2019 Sundance Festival to rave reviews.
