Compiled from six hours of newly discovered conversations with Israel’s founding father, this film presents a rare and fortuitous piece of cinematic archeology. In never-before-seen footage, the then 82-year-old former prime minister is in his final years after leaving office, interviewed at his secluded desert home over the course of several days in 1968. An introspective David Ben-Gurion reflects on the loss of his wife, his personal health and political legacy, and his hopes for Middle East peace. Offering hindsight on the Zionist enterprise, BEN-GURION, EPILOGUE is a work of undeniable historical significance with prophetic implications for Israel’s future.
