About The Event
The Oslo Diaries, directors Mor Loushy and Daniel Sivan (Censored Voices, Sundance 2015) and Guest speaker Gidi Grinstien, Secretary of the Israeli Negotiation Team.
In 1992, with Israeli Paletinian relations at an all-time low and, a small group of Israelis and Palestinians gathered secretly in Oslo. The meetings that lead to The Oslo Accords changed the Middle East forever, they were chronicled only by the negotiators' diaries. This movie bring us a riveting account of 1100 days of secret talks as told by the people who were there at the table. The participants’ detailed and often emotional entries recount the political intrigue, fiery rhetoric, unlikely friendships, and overwhelming desire for peace that were the heart of the negotiations.
Featuring never-before-seen footage and exclusive interviews with key players - including the last on-camera conversation with former Israeli president Shimon Peres - the film recounts a geopolitical story, with a narrative voice that is personal and philosophical. Although politics ultimately doomed The Oslo Accords, the story’s end for the people of Israel and Palestine remains unwritten.
The IAC Cinematec was founded by Dr. Etti Inbal, to introduce Israeli films, film makers, and daily life in Israel to US public. The goal is to create a community of Israeli and American films’ fans and to encourage a dialog between them. The films will be screened with English subtitles. A guest speaker (Director, Actor, or a film professional) will discuss issues related to the film in English.
