Checkpoint
                   
 Directed and produced  by Tom Wright and Therese Saliba

                The signing of the Oslo Peace Accord in 1993 sparked
worldwide  hope for a resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian
conflict. Checkpoint  takes a critical look at this peace agreement and its
aftermath. With  offbeat humor, warmth and insight, it offers an
unorthodox  appraisal you won't hear from network soundbites.

                This engaging documentary explores recent events - the
  assassination of Israeli Prime Minister Rabin, the Palestinian 
takeover of West Bank towns, the first Palestinian
elections, suicide bus bombings, Arafat's abuse of power, and the
growing  frustration among Palestinians - events that seem to
herald a collapse of the historic agreement reached at Oslo.
Palestinians and Israelis speak of the contest over Jerusalem, Israeli
settlement expansion, the forgotten refugees, and their visions of
a just peace.

 The program starts at 5:30pm with a brief introduction about the movie, 
then 1hour movie, followed by 15min commentary by Prof. J. Beinin and 
then a 30 min Q&A with the audience.
