Israeli court reinstated ban on controversial film
Sarah Steers at 12:00 AM ET

On December 3, 2003, Israel's Supreme Court banned Jenin Jenin, a controversial documentary by Israeli Arab filmmaker Mohammad Bakri that depicted an April 2002 Israeli attack on Palestinian militants and civilians. Israel's Film Ratings Board banned the film, claiming that it distorted facts. After the ban was subsequently lifted, the Israeli Supreme Court reinstated it.
