NYC: Film Forum ‘Ben-Gurion Epilogue’
March 8 @ 5:30 PM
An event every day that begins at 5:30pm, repeating until March 13, 2017
Friday, March 3 – Tuesday, March 14 • 12 Days 5:45pm
DIRECTED BY YARIV MOZER
BEN-GURION: EPILOGUE is an unseen 1968 interview with the iconic Founding Father of Israel, in which he repeatedly declares that between land and peace, he would choose peace. Sharp, articulate, and funny at age 82, Ben-Gurion refreshingly admits to having made mistakes.
Israel/France/2016 55 min.|Hebrew, English subtitles:
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.
Playing on a dual program at Film Forum with NIF’s THE SETTLERS (separate admission).
