Ben-Gurion, Epilogue

Buy tickets

In the great depths of the archive, six hours of interview footage was discovered of one of modern history’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.

“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“An invaluable historical document.” The Hollywood Reporter
