The U.S. Secretary of State is about to meet Iran’s Foreign Minister for backroom diplomatic talks. But as the diplomats dig in their heels, it soon falls to their interpreters to keep negotiations on track. Will their daring and unique approach bring about mutual understanding – or nuclear disaster?
“Diplomacy” is intended as a piece of cultural diplomacy in itself, to provoke a conversation between two nations caught in a thirty-year cycle of antagonism and mistrust. Language is our most basic divide, but it is also our only tool to build bridges. What these interpreters do may be outrageous, unwise, and/or motivated by personal considerations… But at least they’re talking.
