Despite the numerous scandals, political maneuvers and recent indictments, Benjamin (Bibi) Netanyahu recently became Israel’s longest serving Prime Minister. A master of political spin, Netanyahu has revolutionised Israeli society over the past two decades and become, in the process, one of the world’s most influential – and divisive – heads of state. Based solely on archive footage, this brilliantly revealing documentary attempts to explain Bibi’s continuing popularity through his carefully controlled and crafted public appearances.
