Defamation

Defamation

Israeli filmmaker Yoav Shamir challenges the idea that there is a ‘new anti-Semitism’. He trails the leader of the US Anti-Defamation League, who attempts to buttress the Zionist cause at every opportunity. Shamir’s uncanny ability to let his camera catch unguarded moments serves him well as he moves from the standard holocaust trip to Poland – that has become de rigueur for Israeli high school students – through candid views of US Jews on the ‘promised land’, to meetings with critics of Israel such as the chronically agitated Norman Finkelstein. A thoughtful film that navigates turbulent waters.
