OBJECTOR (dir MOLLY STUART, 2019)
Objector will tell the story of a young woman’s choice to refuse mandatory service in the Israeli military. As Atalya becomes a conscientious objector, she navigates difficult questions about activism and her relationship to her home community. Atalya's story will help viewers understand what's at stake for conscientious objectors who are jailed and called traitors for their refusal to participate in the occupation of Palestine. The film follows Atalya through the last few weeks leading up to the series of prison sentences she will serve.
Director Molly Stuart will address an english-speaking international audience, and open a window into the movement of conscientious objectors who are critical of Israel’s occupation of Palestine.
