Description

A surprising and unfamiliar portrait of Israel’s sixth prime minister, produced in commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the peace treaty between Israel and Egypt.  Menachem Begin’s six years as prime minister were dramatic and tumultuous, the results of which are still felt deeply in Israel’s social and political landscape. During Begin’s terms, he faced a maelstrom of challenges and made a handful of fateful decisions that led both to the  creation of peace and of war. Through rare  archival footage and interviews with key figures from Begin’s time as prime minister, the film depicts a multi-faceted portrait of a man and the complex society that he sought to lead.

 

Live conversation with Director Levi Zini, moderated by Dr. Shayna Weiss on Tuesday, March 9th at 7:00 pm included with your ticket.
