Harry Hunkele’s documentary is a methodical, absorbing view of the 1978-79 peace accords between Egypt and Israel, spurred by Egypt’s bold leader Anwar Sadat, nurtured tenaciously by President Jimmy Carter, and finally accepted by Israel’s tough, fearful Menachem Begin. It traces the byzantine maneuvers, often in secret, that led to a treaty. The heroes are Carter, Sadat, and Israeli generals Ezer Weizman and Moshe Dayan, as well as Morocco’s King Hassan II and tireless dealmaker Leon Charney. Interviews include Carter, Charney, Henry Kissinger, Wolf Blitzer. (2011) — David Elliott
