Advocate

Coming Soon

A film by Rachel Leah Jones and Philippe Bellaiche

Produced by Rachel Leah Jones, Philippe Bellaiche, Paul Cadieux and Joëlle Bertossa

Lea Tsemel defends Palestinians: from feminists to fundamentalists, from non-violent demonstrators to armed militants. As a Jewish-Israeli lawyer who has represented political prisoners for nearly 50 years, Tsemel, in her tireless quest for justice, pushes the praxis of a human rights defender to its limits.
