"Israel's most prominent filmmaker, as well as one of its most controversial..." -- San Francisco Gate

Amos Gitai: Territories presents six documentaries by this high-profile director (Free Zone) in a three-DVD set. One of Israel's most respected but controversial filmmakers, Gitai has been revered and reviled for his films. Ripped from the headlines, the topics of his documentaries have provoked debate and elicited admiration from audiences everywhere.

Censored by Israeli television, House chronicles the inhabitants of a residence in West Jerusalem. Abandoned during the 1948 war by a Palestinian doctor, the house was requisitioned by the Israeli government as "vacant." As Gitai tells the story of the residents, the region's controversial political history unfolds. Eighteen years later, Gitai returns in A House In Jerusalem to observe the changes in the new residents as well as in the neighborhood.
