“Comprehensive and heartrending,” — The Hollywood Reporter
Critically-acclaimed at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival, this documentary from directors Mor Loushy (Censored Voices) and Daniel Sivan brings to life the untold story of the secret negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians that would ultimately lead to the historic Oslo Accords, which remain relevant and impactful until today. Combining diary entries from the various negotiators, dramatic re-enactments and interviews with the key players, Loushy and Sivan provide a comprehensive overview of the multiple obstacles that were overcome, from the initial secret meetings between two Israeli professors and three members of the Palestine Liberation Front to the historic handshake between Rabin and Arafat. An affirmative lesson in the possibility of compromise against all odds, The Oslo Diaries offers a poignant reminder of a time when the peace process seemed vaguely encouraging.
