Watchmen is a guerrilla film recorded entirely with the surveillance cameras of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. The most basic means are employed to hack the CCTV system and - allegedly illegally - infiltrate the institution.
The film was censored by the Israeli authorities for years while being subject to a singular court case.
Defence attorney Avigdor Feldman was the only lawyer willing to stand alongside the film-maker against the long and costly lawsuit. His claims for freedom of speech created an international legal precedent when the court repealed its censorship and attested the film crucial merit as a critical work, essential to the democratic process. It took 10 years to free it from all other legal limitations. Link to the video by personal request.
