About The Film
Restaging the secret process behind the failed Oslo Accords to riveting, emotional effect, THE OSLO DIARIES disinters the unsanctioned and unprecedented talks that nearly secured an elusive Mideast peace. With official communication between the two sides suspended, Israeli and Palestinian mediators met covertly in Norway over nearly three years, endeavoring to succeed where their leaders had failed. The political intrigue, fiery rhetoric, and unlikely friendships are recalled in exclusive interviews with the key participants, including the last on-camera conversation with former Israeli President Shimon Peres. Award-winning Israeli filmmakers Mor Loushy and Daniel Sivan also employ previously unseen footage with dramatic reenactments, and excerpts from historical books and diaries read by actors. A geopolitical story with very human dimensions, this moving portrait of diplomacy is a powerful, tragic reminder of the yet unfinished journey toward peace for the Israeli and Palestinian people.
