  • JIFF, Documentary, Israeli Politics
  • 1h 1m

A six-hour interview with David Ben-Gurion, one of modern history’s greatest leaders, emerges from the obscurity of an archive where it has lain unrecognised for decades. It is 1968, and Ben-Gurion is 82 years old. He lives in the seclusion of his home in the desert, remote from all political discourse, which allows him a perspective on the Zionist enterprise. His introspective soul-searching is the focus of this film, and his reflections provide a surprising vision for today’s crucial decisions and for the future of Israel.

Winner Best Documentary at the 2017 Ophir Awards (Israeli Oscars).
