Movie Info

A six-hour interview with David Ben-Gurion emerges from the obscurity of an archive where it has lain unrecognized for decades. Ben-Gurion is 82 years old and lives in the desert, remote from all political discourse, which allows him a perspective on the Zionist enterprise, and a surprising vision for the future of Israel.

Among other things, offers unexpected views on making peace with the Arab world.

The Israel Ben-Gurion talks about is more than a fading memory; it now seems a distant planet. Yet there are moments when he seems to look forward, with prophetic insight, at much of what has happened since.

Essential viewing for anyone interested in Israeli history.

It is an often-mocked image, but it is explained here in terms of someone, even in their 80s, looking for change wherever one can find it. It may not be a bad idea to embrace other perspectives no matter where they come from.

Serviceable visual history lesson of 20th century Israel through the eyes of the man who was at the center of its founding...Film portrays him as a very pragmatic politician.

Throws little light on the endless Israeli-Palestinian conflict but stuns as a contrast to today's shrill leaders.
