The Gatekeepers is a powerhouse documentary that runs deeper than a political thriller. Six former heads of the Shin Bet, Israel’s counterterrorism agency, speak with amazing candour about their participation in the policies that have shaped the history of violence between Israelis and Palestinians. Prepare for the moral obstacle course that comes with “fighting to the death for peace” in Israel.
