HBO Picks Up Israeli-Palestinian Doc ‘The Oslo Diaries’



HBO

HBO has acquired all domestic television rights, including streaming, on Mor Loushy and Daniel Sivan’s feature documentary “The Oslo Diaries,” the company announced Sunday.
The film follows the secret 1992 negotiations between Israeli and Palestinian leaders based on readings of the participants’ diaries from the time, interwoven with never-before-seen archival footage and exclusive interviews with key players, including the last on-camera conversation with former Israeli president Shimon Peres.
The talks spanned a period of 1,100 days, and the film offers a portrait of diplomacy and the delicate nature of peace. HBO plans to debut the film later this year to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Oslo Accords.

Hilla Medalia and Ina Fichman produced the film, which was executive produced by Guy Lavie, Koby Gal-Raday, Danna Stern, Dagmar Mielke, Barbara Dobkin and Jean Tsien.
“The Oslo Diaries” made its world premiere in the World Cinema Documentary Competition at the festival last week.

“We are humbled and excited by the warm hug our film has received from audiences at the Sundance Film Festival and thrilled with HBO’s decision to acquire the film,” Loushy and Sivan said in  a statement. “The prestigious platform of HBO will allow us to reach millions of viewers and we’re full of hope that this film will lead to the crucial dialogue we are missing so much these days, when it seems both sides have given up on a peaceful solution.”
HBO on Saturday acquired TV and streaming rights to Rudy Valdez’s feature doc “The Sentence.”
Josh Braun and Ben Braun of Submarine brokered the deal for the filmmakers.
