Director of 'The Settlers': They're Good People Who Are Doing Bad Things

Shimon Dotan wanted to understand who are the people behind what he perceives as Israel's dark future. Talking to Haaretz, he explains why there are barely any Palestinians in his film and why he doesn't hate the settlers.

“I’m curious about how events become mythology,” explains Shimon Dotan, whose new film “The Settlers” is an epic documentary that relates the story of 50 years of settlement in the occupied territories.
