NEW ENGLAND PREMIERE
Don’t miss this remarkable intimate and fascinating visit with David Ben-Gurion, one of modern history’s great leaders. It is 1968, the Founding Father of Israel is 82-years-old and five years out of office. Secluded in his desert home at Sde Boker in the Negev, Ben-Gurion sat for the recently discovered interview that forms the spine of this excellent documentary. Ben-Gurion candidly and introspectively reflects on his life and his life’s work: the Zionist enterprise. (Dir: Yariv Mozer | Israel/France/Germany | 2016 | 70m | English & Hebrew w/ English subtitles)
