About the film: An in-depth interview with David Ben-Gurion, one of modern history’s greatest leaders, emerges from the depths of the Ben-Gurion Archives at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, where it lay unrecognized for decades. It is 1968, and Ben-Gurion is 82 years old. He lives in the seclusion of his home in the desert, removed from all political discourse, which allows him a unique perspective on the Zionist movement. His introspective soul searching is the focus of this film, and his reflections provide a surprising vision for today’s crucial decisions and the future of Israel.
