Movie Info

As a Jewish-Israeli lawyer who has represented political prisoners for nearly 50 years, Tsemel, in her tireless quest for justice, pushes the praxis of a human rights defender to its limits.

  • This documentary portrait of Israeli human rights lawyer Lea Tsemel gets absorbingly up close and personal.

  • Maybe there's a perceptual shift at play, or maybe the film is simply good enough to break past that bias. It certainly rises above the usual standard of both biographical and political docs.

  • Advocate is less of a procedural than it is a portrait of how activism can and must work under extreme obstacles
