The remarkable and controversial story of Benjamin Netanyahu’s rise to power, reflected through four decades of public appearances that changed Israel forever.
20 years before the spectacle of Donald Trump’s presidency emerged, Benjamin Netanyahu already understood the political benefits of creating a toxic relationship with the media, and communicating directly with the public. ‘King Bibi’ explores Netanyahu’s rise to power, relying solely on archival footage of his media performances over the years: from his days as a popular guest expert on American TV, through his public confession of adultery, and his mastery of the art of social media. From one studio to another, “Bibi” evolved from Israel’s great political hope, to a controversial figure whom some perceive as Israel’s savior, and others – as a cynical politician who will stop at nothing to retain his power.
Dan Shadur is an Israeli filmmaker and writer. His debut documentary “Before The Revolution” was funded by Yes Docu and ITVS, premiered in Hotdocs 2013 and featured in dozens of other international festivals. It was the first ever Israeli documentary to be broadcast inside Iran. His film “KING BIBI” is the most watched documentary on Yes Docu Channel in recent years. His work aired on PBS, Arte, ZDF and other broadcasters, and was reviewed and mentioned in The New York Times, Der Spiegel, The Washington Post and many more. Shadur’s articles and stories have been featured in Israel’s leading newspapers and magazines. He is a graduate of the Tel Aviv University’s Steve Tisch School of Film and Television.
