Buzz, Film

Sony Pictures Classics announced today they have acquired rights in North America, Scandinavia, India, South Africa, Benelux, Australia, New Zealand, Asia, and worldwide airlines to THE HUMAN FACTOR directed by Academy Award®-nominee Dror Moreh (THE GATEKEEPERS, SHARON) and produced by Dror Moreh and Teddy Leifer (ICARUS, THE INVISIBLE WAR, THE INTERRUPTERS).

With unprecedented access to the foremost American negotiators, 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.

Said Sony Pictures Classics, “THE HUMAN FACTOR is a seminal movie on one of the most important subjects of our time. It is the movie people are hungering for, this year in particular. It is great to be back in business with Dror Moreh.”

“We are very excited to be working with the talented team at Sony Pictures Classics on the release of THE HUMAN FACTOR later this year,” said Teddy Leifer and Dror Moreh.

Sony Pictures Classics previously collaborated with Dror Moreh on the Academy Award®-nominated THE GATEKEEPERS.

The deal was negotiated by UTA on behalf of Rise Films and Dror Moreh Productions.
