The Oslo Conference

20 years after the Oslo Accords. Is there
still any hope for a two-state solution?

- Fri. 13: Conference with discussions, talks and film
(Registration necessary)

- Sat. 14: Master class with filmmaker Eyal Sivan

(Tickets for the Master Class sold on Saturday from 17:00)

In collaboration with LeMonde diplomatique Teatertanken and Dag Hammarskjøldprogrammet.

Salam Fayyad, the Palestinian Prime Minister for the past five years, will be at Litteraturhuset in Oslo on Friday to partake in a panel with Terje Rød-Larsen and Jan Egeland. Israeli filmmaker Eyal Sivan will also be at Litteraturhuset to talk and show his films Common State and Jaffa - The Orange's Clockwork.

Other participants: Mustafa Barghouti, Radi Jarai, Torgeir Larsen, Shir Hever, Omar Barghouti, Ingeborg Moa, Stiian van der Merwe, Dalit Baum, Dror Feiler, Alia Alrosan, Ben Rivers, May Odeh and Thomas Kufus.

The United States Secretary of State John Kerry is working on new negotiations for a two-state solution. Others have given up on that idea and are advocating for a one-state solution.

Some also want to abolish the Palestinian Authority, putting the responsibility of the occupation solely on Israel.

What is the road ahead for Israel and Palestine, now 20 years after Norway hosted the Oslo Accords?

Screening of Common State - Potential Conversation, introduced by Israeli filmmaker Eyal Sivan.

Common State is a conversation between twenty Palestinians and Israelis, edited together, with different views and perspectives on the situation in Israel/Palestine and the possibilities of a two-state or one-state solution. The film is long, but filled with very interesting points well worth listening to. The conversation goes beyond the dilemmas we normally hear about the conflict.

Israel/Frankrike/Tyskland/Belgia 2009,
86 min (In Arabic, Hebrew, English,

Master Class with Eyal Sivan

followed by a screening of

Jaffa - The Orange's Clockwork

Jaffa - The Orange's Clockwork is the story of Jaffa and how oranges from Jaffa went from being a predominantly Palestinian export product to become a symbol of Israel. As in many of his films, Eyal Sivan is concerned with changing our understanding of history.

In the Master Class before the film screening Eyal Sivan will talk about using film as a tool for activism, to change perceptions about history and about political use of memory. These and other topics have made him a highly controversial figure in the societal debate in Israel. He was only 21 when he moved to France in 1985 and has since lived his life sharing his time between Europe and Israel. He has made several films on these topics.

In collaboration with LeMonde diplomatique
and Films from the South
