“Welcome to The DocArena Podcast in association with Film Ireland. My name is Ross Whitaker and every fortnight, I want to dig deeply into the motivations of documentary filmmakers – how do they choose their subject material and what approaches and strategies do they employ to fund, craft and distribute their work…

In this episode of The DocArena Podcast, Ross Whitaker talks to filmmaker Dror Moreh, whose 2012 documentary The Gatekeepers was nominated for Best Documentary Feature at the 85th Academy Awards. Moreh’s latest film, The Human Factor, is the behind-the-scenes story from the last 25 years of how the United States came within reach of pulling off the impossible –securing peace between Israel and its neighbours. Today, the need to learn from past mistakes couldn’t be more urgent.

The Human Factor is available on Dogwoof on Demanand various platforms from 21st May 2021.

Ross Whitaker is a documentary filmmaker (Katie, The Boys in Green, Between Land and Sea) and is a former editor of Film Ireland Magazine and programmer of the IFI Dublin Documentary Film Festival @RossWhitakerTV
