The Gatekeepers
The 2012 Israeli documentary "The Gatekeepers" was recently named the best nonfiction film of 2012 by the National Society of Film Critics in the United States.

The film, by director Dror Moreh, tells the story of the Israeli Shin Bet from the perspective of six former heads of Israel’s secretive internal security service. It combines in-depth interviews with archival footage and computer animation to recount the role that the group played in Israel’s security from the Six Day War to the present.

The Film Critics' Society is comprised of 60 newspaper critics from across the country .

"The Gatekeepers" also was named to the short list for the Academy Award's best documentary category. A second Israeli documentary, "5 Broken Cameras," directed by Emad Burnat and Guy Davidi, also made it to the Oscars' short list.
