A film about Palestinian criminals in Israeli prisons has been accepted to the 2007 Sundance Film Festival. Security Cases, which examines the political activities of Palestinians incarcerated in Israel, will join a select club of other films to screen at the prestigious Colorado film festival. A co-production between French TV channel Arte and Israel's New Fund for Film and Television, Shimon Dotan's latest project focuses on three Palestinians in custody because of terrorist activities aimed against Israel. In prison, the threesome learn about democracy and leadership, influencing from their jail cells the Palestinian elections that took place earlier this year. Security Cases is the fourth film funded by the New Fund for Film and Television to be accepted at Sundance.
