Brilliantly assembled entirely of footage from countless TV appearances, “King Bibi” charts the ascent of Israel’s media-savvy prime minster. As his political fortunes rose, Netanyahu quickly perfected his skills as a master of public speaking and media manipulation. Through four decades of news conferences, interviews, and speeches, Netanyahu exhibits an obsessive, near-faultless execution of his public image. 20 years before the spectacle of Donald Trump, Netanyahu already understood the political benefits of a toxic relationship with the media and direct communication with the public. Deconstructing the man who ushered Israeli politics into the 21st century with an American-style of politicking, this potent portrayal reveals Netanyahu’s instinct for seizing power through the art of communication.
