Storyline

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. Written by Yariv Mozer

More than just an archive dump
28 February 2017 | by NozzSee all my reviews

Based on six hours of recently discovered film, this feature not only restricts itself to a fraction of the material (understandably) but also breaks it up and contextualizes it with earlier and later footage, so that viewing the movie is not a chore. The filmmakers seem to have been particularly interested in making sure no one misses the point that Ben Gurion believed that Gaza and the West Bank (except Jerusalem) were not too high a price to pay for peace. It's a little strange that so much (including the core interview) is in English, but although Ben Gurion claimed he found English difficult, he has no trouble expressing himself. The interviewer, Clinton Bailey, knows what he's doing (and indeed he turned out to be destined for bigger things). It is certainly to be hoped that the full six-hour interview will become available, perhaps as a book.
