Shattered Dreams of Peace | Israeli-Palestinian Relations After Oslo (full documentary) | FRONTLINE

“Shattered Dreams of Peace: The Road From Oslo” includes interviews with key figures from both sides of the negotiating table including Benjamin Netanyahu, Yasser Arafat, Shimon Peres, Saeb Erekat and Ehud Barak.

The documentary traced how the cautious optimism in the aftermath of Arafat and then-Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin signing the 1993 Oslo accord was undermined in the following years by violence and major setbacks. It explored the growing threat to the peace process posed by radical nationalist factions among both Jews and Palestinians — groups, including Hamas, that opposed all compromise between the two peoples. The documentary also examined the U.S. role in the peace process, including the U.S.-brokered negotiations at Wye River in 1998, Camp David in 2000, and in Taba, Egypt, in 2001.

Watch a special presentation of “Shattered Dreams of Peace” Tues., Nov. 7, 2023, on PBS stations.

“Shattered Dreams of Peace: The Road From Oslo” was produced and directed by Dan Setton and Tor Ben Mayor. The WGBH executive producer was Zvi Dor-Ner. FRONTLINE’s executive producer was David Fanning.
