BEN-GURION: EPILOGUE is an unseen 1968 interview with the iconic Founding Father of Israel, in which he repeatedly declares that between land and peace, he would choose peace. Sharp, articulate, and funny at age 82, Ben-Gurion refreshingly admits to having made mistakes.
Presented with generous support from the Joan S. Constantiner Fund for Jewish and Holocaust Films and the Richard Brick, Geri Ashur & Sara Bershtel Fund for Social Justice Documentaries.
Playing on a dual program with THE SETTLERS (separate admission).

“The Zionist luminary offers a raw, contemplative self-analysis of his life’s work… Interwoven with other footage from the period – of meetings with foreign leaders, a speech in Israel’s Parliament, birthday celebrations – the film is, in part, a wistful ode to a lost generation of leaders who viewed simplicity as a virtue even as they strove for giant goals.”
– Isabel Kershner, The New York Times
“A work of undeniable historical significance.”
– Wendy Ide, Screen Daily
