BEN GURION, EPILOGUE MayMay 04 2022 12:00pm - MayMay 18 2022 11:59pm

Deep in the archives of the Hebrew University, 35 mm reels were discovered of 6 hours of never before seen interview with David Ben-Gurion, one of Zionism movement's biggest icons and one of modern history greatest leaders. It is 1968, he is 82 years old, 5 years before Israel's founder and first prime minister past away and he lives in his secluded home in the desert a symbol of his devotion to the settlement of the south of Israel. In the history of Israel, It is usually in their latter part of life, that leaders let themselves and dare to examine their own views. With or without the official responsibility, it is easier for them to think differently.
Forty years later, based only on archive material, newsreels of the time, rare and reconstructed films gathered from various archives, radio recordings, and still photographs, the film revisits Ben-Gurion's outlook and prophecy. The final ten years in the life of the leader, a time when he had found himself outside Israeli politics, removed from all leadership discourse, allowed him a hindsight perspective on the Zionist enterprise. Ben-Gurion was now able to express his opinion over all that was going on around him and to engage in truly introspective soul searching, which is to be the focus of the film.
Given the coming days that call for crucial decisions as for the future of Israel, the film turns back in time, in order to listen to his clear voice and leadership and to seek answers for today and for the future.
