From the Oscar-nominated director of The Gatekeepers comes the untold, behind-the-scenes story of America’s 30-year effort to secure peace in the Middle East, told from the perspective of the US negotiators. Reviews describe it as a “masterful summation of the Arab-Israeli conflict” that can help us understand better what is going on. Another review states: “As significant as it is drop dead fascinating, offering not only intimate personal stories, but also potent insights into what went wrong so many times in that most incendiary part of the world.” This documentary looks remarkably compelling and eye-opening – an important story to tell.
