“This devastating, resonant documentary account of the secret 1993 Israeli-Palestinian peace talks succeeds by sticking with its subject well past the flashbulb-signing ceremony.” (Film Journal International)
In 1992 Israeli-Palestinian relations were in dire straits. Communication between the two sides could be punishable with a prison sentence. But that didn’t stop a small group of courageous Israelis and Palestinians from secretly holding talks in Oslo. Their meetings, never officially sanctioned and chronicled only by the negotiators themselves attained mythic status. The talented directors Mor Loushy and Daniel Sivan (Censored Voices) bring us this riveting account of 1100 days of talks as thoughtfully recounted by the people who were there at the table. Featuring never-before-seen footage, reenactments, and exclusive interviews with key players (including the last on-camera conversation with former Israeli president Shimon Peres), this is a detailed and emotional film filled with political intrigue, fiery rhetoric, unlikely alliances, and the overwhelming desire for peace.
