Sorry, there are no upcoming session times for Advocate at Dendy Canberra
Thursday, August 1 at 8.30PM
Lea Tsemel defies convention at every turn. The legendary and controversial Israeli human rights lawyer has devoted her life to the battle for Palestinian rights.
Tenacious, eloquent, and with a wry sense of humour, Tsemel is one of the few lawyers willing to defend Palestinian political prisoners. Although the courts have often decided the verdict before a trial begins, Tsemel fights for justice with tireless optimism. This real-life legal drama is an intimate portrait of a unique figure in the world of social justice, a clear-minded woman undaunted by death threats and fuelled by cigarettes and conviction.
This imposing documentary is remarkable for providing us with another point of view...The ongoing works of the courageous and passionate Lea Tsemel are inspired - Sundance Institute
