Back Door Channels: The Price of Peace
Director Harry Hunkele and producer Matthew Tollin make a Q and A for their hot and controversial film at the 2010 Abu Dhabi Film Festival.
Back Door Channels: The Price of Peace (2009).
'Back Door Channels' is a creatively made documentary about the 'back door' (unofficial meetings) Camp David Accords which took place between USA, Egypt and Israel in 1979. It features never before seen footage of the numerous meetings and conferences at the time during the painstaking peace talks and also interweaves contemporary interviews with the then president Jimmy Carter and much more. The film is both poetic and informative interlacing art and CGI effects which add to the story aesthetically and descriptively. Nevertheless, HOT debates and even yelling ensued during the Q and A at the Abu Dhabi Film Festival. Of course, the film touches on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict so that is to be expected when dealing with such a topic, especially while viewed in Arab nations. And while the film is not perfect (which film is?) the fact that it raises so many questions and that it created so much passionate debate afterward, I do not think that these filmmakers could be more proud of this excited and fiery response. It is a film that teaches, illuminates and stirs the emotions viscerally so I would say, job well done guys!
