About the Film
In the great depths of the archive, an 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. He lives in his secluded home in the desert, removed from all political discourse, which allows him a hindsight perspective on the Zionist enterprise. Ben Gurion’s introspective soul searching is the focus of this film, and his clear voice provides a surprising vision for today’s crucial decisions and the future of Israel. “Ben Gurion, Epilogue is a wistful ode to a lost generation of leaders who viewed simplicity as a virtue even as they strove for giant goals." - The New York Times.
