Opening at The Ross on Friday, June 11, THE HUMAN FACTOR presents a cogent and involving view of the Israeli-Palestinian peace efforts, mainly from 1991 until the end of Bill Clinton’s first term, told through the recollections of United States negotiators charged with brokering a peace. [THE HUMAN FACTOR is] a deeply wise examination of statesmanship and leadership, or their egregious absence; a celebration of compromise as the indispensable element of diplomacy; and a stirring argument for the power of humanity. –Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal “As significant as it is drop dead fascinating, offering not only intimate personal stories, but also potent insights into what went wrong so many times in that most incendiary part of the world.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times A riveting look at a missed opportunity. … The new documentary from Dror Moreh ('The Gatekeepers') chronicles the promising lead-up to the failed Israeli-Palestinian negotiations at Camp David in 2000. –Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter THE HUMAN FACTOR is showing at the Mary Riepma Ross Media Arts Center on Friday, June 11 through Thursday, June 24. Show times are available at www.TheRoss.org, by consulting your newspaper, or by calling the MRRMAC film information line at 402.472.5353. The Motion Picture Association of America has rated THE HUMAN FACTOR PG-13 (Some Violence/Bloody Images). With unprecedented access to the foremost American negotiators, THE HUMAN FACTOR is the behind-the-scenes story from the last 25 years, of how the United States came within reach of pulling off the impossible – securing peace between Israel and its neighbors. Today, the need to learn from past mistakes couldn't be more urgent.
