The Settlers

Seven families live in Tel Rumeidah, or “Jesse’s Land,” in a controversial settlement in Hebron. They have been struggling for fourteen years to hold on to this small hill in the center of the town which they believe they hold the right to, and in doing so have stirred much political debate in Israeli society. This film allows a rare and intimate look into the world of this extreme group of Jewish settlers.
