“Netanyahu, America & the Road to War in Gaza”

Escalating tension between the Israeli leader and the U.S. after months of war in Gaza. At a critical juncture, Benjamin Netanyahu’s political survival and turbulent relationships with the U.S. and the Palestinians over peace in the Middle East.

As the war in Gaza continues with devastating consequences, a major 90-minute documentary offers a sweeping examination of the critical moments leading up to this crisis over the course of the past three decades, and the pivotal role of a central player: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Starting with the Oslo peace accords and continuing through the Oct. 7 Hamas attack and the ongoing war in Gaza, the documentary draws on years of reporting and is an incisive look at the long history of failed peace efforts and violent conflict in the region — and the increasing tensions between Israel and its ally, the U.S., over the war’s catastrophic toll and what comes next.

Also premiering in December: Failure at the Fence, a groundbreaking visual investigation in collaboration with The Washington Post that features a detailed examination of how Hamas was able to breach Israel’s vaunted security barrier on Oct. 7 and carry out its attack.
