“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

Synopsis

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.

Country: Israel, France
Year: 2016
Duration: 1h 10m
Director: Yariv Mozer
