Directing the Shin Bet, Israel’s secret service, is certainly one of the most consequential jobs there is. One wrong move and the entire world suffers the reverberations. The Oscar-nominated documentary “The Gatekeepers” collects the thoughts of all six living former heads of the agency for an unprecedented examination of Israel’s unique security operation. Director Dror Moreh will be present for a discussion, moderated by former Middle East diplomat Dennis Ross, when the film screens at the Aspen Ideas Festival, Sunday, June 30, in Paepcke Auditorium.
