For the first time ever, six former heads of the Shin Bet agreed to share their insights and reflect publicly on their actions and decisions. Intimately interviewed, they shed light on the controversy surrounding the Occupation in aftermath of the Six Day War. Toby Greene, Fathom Deputy Editor spoke to Moreh about the making of The Gatekeepers, its impact in Israel, and invited Moreh to respond to some of the criticism the film has received.
