“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
Based on a rare interview with David Ben-Gurion in 1968, this fascinating documentary offers a glimpse into the private life of one of the most important statesmen of the 20th century. Conducted five years after he resigned from public life, Ben-Gurion looks back at his youth and time in office, contemplates the future of Israel following the 1967 War and explains why he believes peace is more important than land. Ben-Gurion, Epilogue looks beyond the iconic tufts of hair to reveal a thoughtful, modest and loving man.
