    BEN-GURION, EPILOGUE

    Movies
    Bay Area Premiere! After he left politics and was living at Kibbutz Sde Boker in the Negev, Israel’s first Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion gave a candid interview about Israeli society and the future of the territories taken over in the 1967 Six Day War. This remarkable footage was misplaced for many decades and only recently discovered and edited into a documentary. Our guest speaker, Dr. Eran Kaplan of San Francisco State University, will lead a post-screening discussion about Ben-Gurion’s personal and political life.
