BEN-GURION, EPILOGUE, ABOUT THE LEGENDARY FOUNDER OF ISRAEL, is an invaluable historical document. Featuring footage from a six-hour interview with David Ben-Gurion that has never been seen before. Yariv Mozer’s film is essential viewing for anyone interested in Israeli history. The interview with the 82-year-old former Israeli leader was held at his remote, isolated home in the Negev Desert in 1968. The black-and-white footage was discovered at the Steven Spielberg Jewish Film Archive in Jerusalem. The audio soundtrack was missing – but the missing tape reels were subsequently retrieved from the Ben-Gurion Archives in Negev. They have now been put together for the first time since 1970.
