TV Series Documentary. As decades of bitter conflict between Israel and Yasser Arafat’s Palestinian Authority reached a fever pitch in 2002, director Oliver Stone Arrived in the Middle East in search of some truths—and found them as elusive as Arafat himself. The result is this blistering verite documentary in which Stone set his sights on interviewing leaders of both Israel and the Palestinian Authority—during one of the most violent eras in their history. Shot over the course of five explosive days, the film allows well-known principals of the conflict to speak their minds, ultimately demonstrating just how far apart the two sides stand. Interviews include former Israeli Prime Ministers Shimon Perez, Ehud Barak and Benjamin Netanyahu, Palestinian Authority Minister of Information and Culture Yasser Abed Rabbo, and a group of masked fighters from the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade.
