The Judge

Animal welfare meets human welfare under Docville

Christopher Quinn / Erika Cohn: Eating Animals / The Judge

: Two of the films that stood out at this year's Belgian DocVille festival remind us of the constant violations of laws and regulations, and the injustice that affects both animals and humans.

With hope of change

Erika Cohn / Rina Castelnuovo-Hollander and Tamir Elterman: The Judge / Muhi – Generally Temporary

: By portraying a female Sharia judge in the West Bank and a Palestinian boy in an Israeli hospital, respectively, these two documentaries provide insight into some of the challenges Palestinians face.
