BEN-GURION, EPILOGUE

Director: Yariv Mozer, Israel, France, 2016, English, Hebrew w. subtitles, 61 min.

BEN-GURION,


Compiled from six hours of newly discovered conversations with Israel's founding father, the film presents a rare and fortuitous piece of history with one of modern Israel’s greatest leaders — David Ben-Gurion. It is 1968 and he is 82 years old, five years before his death. He lives in his secluded home in the desert, removed from all political discourse, which allows him a hindsight perspective on the Zionist enterprise. Ben-Gurion’s introspective soul-searching is the focus of this film, and his clear voice provides a surprising vision for today’s crucial decisions and the future of Israel. "The film is, in part, a wistful ode to a lost generation of leaders who viewed simplicity as a virtue even as they strove for giant goals." New York Times. “An invaluable historical document.” Hollywood Reporter. Israeli Film and TV Academy Award 2017 for Best Documentary.
