The Oslo Diaries
  • Thu, Sep 06 7:00 PM
  • $12.00 / $15.00

Dir. Mor Loushy, Daniel Sivan (Israel, Canada, 2018, 97 min)

In 1992, with Israeli-Palestinian relations at an all-time low and any communication between the two sides punishable by jail time, a small group of Israelis and Palestinians gathered secretly in Oslo for a series of meetings that came to be known as The Oslo Accords and dramatically changed the political landscape of the Middle East. Articulated through readings of the participants’ diaries from the time and airing on the 25th anniversary of the Accords, this geopolitical story features never-before-seen archival footage and exclusive interviews with key players, including the last on-camera conversation with former Israeli president Shimon Peres. A riveting account of talks that spanned a period of 1,100 days, the film offers a resonant portrait of diplomacy and the delicate nature of peace. Directed by Mor Loushy and Daniel Sivan, The Oslo Diaries premieres on HBO on Thursday, September 13.

Q&A to follow with directors and producer Hilla Medalia.
