Winner of the Israeli Ophir Award (the Israeli Oscars) for Best Documentary Film

The event will begin with a dessert reception at 7:15 P.M, sponsored by Violet Zeitlin and Claire Winick. The program and screening will follow at 7:45 P.M.

In the depths of the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev archive, six hours of interview footage was discovered of one of modern history’s greatest leaders – David Ben-Gurion. It is 1968, and he is 82 years old, five years before his death. His introspective soul-searching provides a surprising vision for today’s crucial decisions and the future of Israel.
