RSVP to receive a link to the film. The post-film discussion will be offered on Zoom.

The link to the film and the Zoom instructions will be sent out approximately one week before the discussion.

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 unrecognized 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.
