They have tried it all: wars and peace processes, terror attacks and closures, road checks and Intifadas. After long decades of futile attempts to settle the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, there is only one solution left: a football match. Based on a successful Israeli novel of the same name, The 90-Minute War – directed by veteran Israeli director Eyal Halfon and starring Moshe Ivgy – offers a thought-provoking take on the conflict, and an ingenious plan for a resolution.
