In 1992, with Israeli-Palestinian relations at an all-time low and any communication between the two sides punishable by jail time, a select group of Israelis and Palestinians gathered secretly in Oslo for a series of clandestine meetings that would dramatically change the political landscape of the Middle East. Chronicling their journey towards peace, The Oslo Diaries features rare, never-before-seen archival footage and diary entries of key negotiators on both sides, providing an inside look at the immense pressure faced by the architects of what came to be known as the Oslo Accords. With tensions once again rising, this revealing, timely film premieres on the 25th anniversary of the Accords: September 13. A comprehensive, dramatic account of the negotiations, this geopolitical story draws on previously unseen footage shot from 1992 to 1995, as well as excerpts from and re-creations based on the negotiators’ diaries, which are the only available accounts of what happened behind closed doors. Many of those involved openly and emotionally recount the political intrigue, fiery rhetoric, unlikely friendships and overwhelming desire for peace at the heart of the negotiations. This illuminating and poignant documentary sheds new light on these secret talks, featuring exclusive interviews, including former Israeli president and foreign minister Shimon Peres in the last recorded interview before his 2016 death. Spotlighting the very human personalities behind this extraordinary peace process, The Oslo Diaries includes interviews with key players on both sides, among them Ron Pundak, Abu Ala, Uri Savir, Hanan Ashrawi, Yossi Beilin, Joel Singer, Daniel Kurtzer, Nabil Shaath, Dennis Ross and Saeb Erekat.
