NEW ENGLAND PREMIERE. Festival Opening Night with Filmmaker!
Q&A with Director Yariv Mozer and Ilan Troen, founding director Schusterman Center for Israel Studies at Brandeis University. Welcome by Yehuda Yaakov, Consul General of Israel to New England
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)
