Dir. Molly Stuart - 72min - 2019 - USA, Israel
Like all Israeli youth, Atalya is obligated to become a soldier. Unlike most, she questions the practices of her country’s military, and becomes determined to challenge this rite of passage.
Despite her family’s political disagreements and personal concerns, she refuses military duty and is imprisoned for her dissent. Her concern for Palestinian human rights disqualifies her for status as an official conscientious objector, but her actions sweep her family and community into a journey of political transformation.
