Yael Perlov, Israel Institute visiting artist at Duke University and the Artist in Residence in Cinematic Arts, will screen and then discuss her award-winning documentary, Ben-Gurion, Epilogue in a Q&A panel moderated by Prof. Shai Ginsburg (AMES).
The film brings to life a lost interview with of one of the modern history’s greatest leaders, David Ben-Gurion. It is 1968, he is 82 and lives in the desert. Ben-Gurion’s introspective soul-searching provides a surprising vision for crucial decisions Israel needs to make today. At the time of the global leadership crisis, the film also brings thought-provoking insights about the role of leaders in today’s complex world.
