In this sharp-edged political mockumentary, a century of intractable conflict between Israelis and Palestinians is going to be settled once and for all . . . on the soccer field.
The region’s leaders, in a desperate attempt to end the stalemate, have agreed that one 90-minute match will determine the fate of the two peoples: The winner gets to stay, and the loser leaves forever.
Organizing the high-stakes match is not without its own complications: Where will the match be held? Who will be the referees? Can Israeli-Arabs play on Israel’s team?
The 90 Minute War is a dark satire that scores some serious points.
The Israeli Academy of Film and Television nominated The 90 Minute War in three categories for the Ophir Awards:
- Moshe Ivgy – Best Actor
- Norman Issa – Best Supporting Actor
- Arik Leibovitz – Best Editing
