For Septembers Monthly Screening, the Rehoboth Beach Film Society will present “The Gatekeepers” at 7:00 pm on Thursday, September 26th at DiFebo’s at Bear Trap Dunes, and at 7:00 pm on Friday, September 27th in the upstairs screening room at the Movies at Midway in Rehoboth Beach.

The Gatekeepers, an Oscar® nominee for Best Documentary, reveals the behind the scenes role of the Shin Bet, Israel’s domestic secret service agency, during the past forty years. For the first time ever, six former heads of the Shin Bet, share their insights and reflect publicly on their actions and decisions from the Six-Day War to present. In a series of in-depth interviews, they talk openly about the major events that marked their tenures. The interviews are accompanied by archival footage and computer animations based on photographs taken at these events.

The citizens they swore to protect may have been safer as a result of their actions, but was the country any closer to peace? The audience is left pondering whether they or their governments would have responded any differently. “New York Times” critic A. O. Scott called the film the best documentary of 2012, deeming it “essential, eye-opening viewing.” [2012, Israel, Runtime: 101 min., Rated: PG-13]

Tickets will be sold at the door on a first come, first serve basis. Attendees of the Ocean View screenings can also receive 10% off DiFebo’s regular dinner entrees on the evening of the screening. The restaurant begins serving dinner at 4:30 pm; reservations and early arrivals for dinner are encouraged.
