2019 Milwaukee Film Festival Screening: Advocate

October 23, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Recognized as a Doc Fest favorite the Advocate will be shown three times throughout the festival.

For a glimpse of the movie, check out the trailer of the film and learn more about the film below.

An underexamined aspect of the Israel/Palestine conflict is how the Israeli justice system can be biased against Palestinian defendants. An Israeli human rights lawyer fights to ensure fair trails for all, but those beliefs are tested when her activist husband is charged with treason.  This fascinating doc is both an inspiring portrait of a strong woman and a complex look at legal and ethical quagmires.
