Hot House

Shimon Dotan
Ahlam Tamini
In a candid and unflinching portrait of Palestinian prisoners, Shimon Dotan takes viewers inside the HOT HOUSE, the highest security prisons in Israel. Thousands of Palestinians fill these detention facilities because of their involvement in suicide bombings and alleged questionable political activities. Filmed on location in both men's and women's prisons, HOT HOUSE questions whether these facilities are quelling violence or bolstering the Palestinian cause. Personal interviews with detainees and prison guards reveal the latter.
