A Feature Documentary by Molly Stuart
Coming January 2019
Like all Israeli teenagers, Atalya Ben Abba is obligated to become a soldier. Unlike most, she questions the ethics of her country’s military and becomes determined to challenge this rite of passage. Her family expresses a range of political disagreements and personal concerns. Nevertheless, she refuses her military duty and is imprisoned for her dissent. Objector follows Atalya through her conscientious objection, imprisonment, and beyond, as she attempts to reconcile her Jewish identity, her love for her homeland, and her dedication to Palestinian rights.
