Don’t miss this remarkable, intimate documentary visit with David Ben-Gurion, one of modern history’s great leaders. It is 1968, the Founding Father of Israel is 82 years old and five years out of office. Secluded in his desert home at Sde Boker in the Negev, Ben-Gurion sat for this recently discovered interview that forms this excellent documentary’s spine. Ben-Gurion candidly reflects on his life and his life’s work: the Zionist enterprise.
