Bat Yam – Temple of the Islands to show film as part of festival

Island Reporter, Captiva Current, Sanibel-Captiva Islander

For the first time, Bat Yam Temple of the Islands will host a film, "The Oslo Diaries," as part of the 23rd Annual Jewish Film Festival of Southwest Florida, sponsored by the Jewish Federation of Lee and Charlotte Counties.

It will be shown on Jan. 27 at 3 p.m. in the Sanctuary at the Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ, at 2050 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel.

The HBO documentary "The Oslo Diaries" was presented at the Sundance Film Festival in 2018 and was a selection in the World Cinema Documentary Competition category. Directed by Mor Loushy and Daniel Sivan, it begins in 1992 as a small group of Israelis and Palestinians meet in a remote villa outside of Oslo and begin highly risky secret back channel negotiations. The unsanctioned meetings are chronicled over several years from footage shot during negotiations and from the negotiators' diaries supplemented by interviews.

There will be a discussion after the film is shown.

Tickets are $12 at the door or in advance at
