Director Dror Moreh talks about his new documentary, “The Gatekeepers,” nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. Six former heads of the Shin Bet, Israel’s Secret Service, reflect on their successes and failures to maintain security in the midst of shifting politics and imperatives of the “peace process.” Each man weighs in candidly on topics from preemptive strikes to confronting terrorists. “The Gatekeepers” opens at Lincoln Plaza February 1 and at Film Forum February 20.
