Never settle for less

It's been almost fifty years since the Six-Day War, and since then more than half a million Israeli settlers have moved into the occupied areas on the West Bank. Shimon Dotan's documentary THE SETTLERS outlines the historical and political events behind the occupation and introduces us to the different types of people who live in the settlements. Most of them have moved there to get access to affordable housing, but a vocal minority of zionists see themselves as the vanguard in a campaign to expand Israel’s borders.
