LISTEN > Droh Moreh – Director – The Gatekeepers

The Gatekeepers

Since its inception, the Israeli Film Festival has continued to grow and this year, it presents one of the strongest programs to date. Expanding to additional venues in Melbourne, Canberra and Byron Bay, the IFF is the only Australia-wide showcase for Israeli film and one of the standouts this year is The Gatekeepers, which is about the Six Day War and the role played by six former heads of Israeli’s secret intel security service.

The Gatekeepers has been nominated for an Academy Award and is one of the most talked about films/docos. Caitlin Gibson chats to director Droh Moreh about this extraordinary and controversial documentary.
