Friday, 28th August - 6 pm

Lea Tsemel is an Israeli human rights lawyer who represents Palestinian offenders. Some call her a lawyer of terrorists and therefore a disgrace to the country. For others she represents freedom fighters and opposes Israeli settlement policy. Herself, Lea Tsemel says she is a lawyer who always loses. Two of her current cases are presented in the film, while archive footage provides insights into her career.
