The story of how there was – almost – peace in the Middle East

The 2000 Camp David negotiations between Israel’s prime minister Ehud Barak and Palestinian president Yasser Arafat have gone down in history as the closest the two nations have ever come to agreeing on a two-state solution. In THE HUMAN FACTOR six American diplomats take us behind the scenes of the negotiations, while Academy Award-nominated director Dror Moreh (THE GATEKEEPERS) places the talks within the context of US Middle East policy back to the George H.W. Bush administration, the Oslo Accords and the Monica Lewinsky scandal.
