Peace By Piece

A Unique look at one of the most intriguing turning points in the history of the state of Israel, through the eyes of Nabil and Hisham, two of Jordan’s most accomplished theater personalities. On the evening of November 4th 1995, the two were preparing for their first tour of Israel with their political satire “Peace, Oh, Peace”, scheduled for the next morning. That night Prime Minister Rabin was assassinated. But the two decided, in spite of the tragedy, to set out on their trip. This film follows their encounters with the harsh reality that followed the assassination and their rave performance at the “Cameri” Theater. But the personal sense of reverie was shattered the next morning, when Hisham received word that he has been expelled for the Jordanian Writer’s Union, an event foreshadowing the eventual destruction of their careers.
