COMMENT VISIONNER CE FILM ?
  • Israël, Palestine | 2019 | 75 minutes
  • Un film de Molly Stuart

Comme tous les jeunes israéliens, Atalya est obligée de faire son service militaire. Contrairement à la plupart de ses camarades, elle remet en question les pratiques de l’armée de son pays et est déterminée à défier ce rite de passage. Malgré les désaccords politiques et les préoccupations de sa famille, elle refuse son service militaire et est emprisonnée pour sa dissidence. Son courage pousse ceux qui l’entourent à reconsidérer leurs propres positions politiques et à utiliser leur pouvoir pour aider les mentalités à changer.
Objector suit Atalya en prison et au-delà, offrant un regard sur le conflit israélo-palestinien du point de vue d’une jeune femme qui cherche la vérité et prend position pour la justice.

Like most young adults in Israel, Atalya is required to join the army. She strongly objects to the army’s role in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and doesn’t want to be part of it. But she’s also scared that if she refuses to do military service, people will view her as a traitor. She talks at length about her intentions with family members, who have differing opinions on the matter. It’s striking how much real listening is done, and how much space there is for dissenting views. The way her grandfather lovingly clasps her hand in his as he says it’s “so stupid” to be an objector, is telling.
While preparing herself for a possible jail sentence of indefinite length, Atalya makes increasingly frequent visits to the occupied territories. There, she sees Palestinians being chased from their homes, which are subsequently destroyed. She also gets into contact with other objectors.
Slowly but surely, she transforms from a 19-year-old with a strong sense of justice into a leader of a group of young people who are saying “no” to the occupation, and who don’t see military service the way the older generations do: as a necessary step on the road to adulthood.
