In The Oslo Diaries, directors Mor Loushy and Daniel Sivan bring us a riveting account of 1,100 days of secret talks, as told by the people who were there at the table. Their detailed and often emotional diary entries recount the political intrigue, fiery rhetoric, unlikely friendships and overwhelming desire for peace that were at the heart of the negotiations. In 1992, with Israeli-Palestinian relations at an all-time low and any communication punishable with jail, a small group of Israelis and Palestinians gathered in Oslo – secretly and illegally. The meetings came to be known as the ‘Oslo Accords’ and they changed the Middle East forever.

Reviews

Five stars. Focusing on the secret 1992 peace talks in Oslo between participants on both the Israeli and Palestinian sides of the equation, this is a film that is at once hopeful, but also feels as dangerous and tense as a great espionage thriller.
