"Advocate," a new documentary from filmmakers Rachel Leah Jones and Philippe Bellaiche, profiles Israeli lawyer Lea Tsemel, whose decades-long defense of Palestinians accused of resisting the occupation via both violent and non-violent means has earned her the moniker "the devil's advocate." Tsemel, who really pushes the envelope when it comes to the customary practices of a human rights defender, is shown as she undertakes two highly contentious court cases in her tireless quest for justice.
