In the great depths of the archive, six hours of interview footage was discovered of one of modern history’s greatest leaders- David Ben-Gurion. It is 1968 and he is 82 years old, five years before his death. He lives in his secluded home in the desert, removed from all political discourse, which allows him a hindsight perspective on the Zionist enterprise. Ben-Gurion’s introspective soul searching is the focus of this film, and his clear voice provides a surprising vision for today’s crucial decisions and the future of Israel.

‘This trauma has its footsteps in my daily life,” says Amichai Greenberg, writer/ director of the unusual historical drama The Testament, which recently opened in theaters throughout Israel.
The Testament, which won the Israeli Feature Film Competition at the Haifa International Film Festival and premiered at the Venice International Film Festival last fall, tells the story of Yoel (Ori Pfeffer), a religiously observant, dedicated historical researcher, who has brought suit against a corporation to halt the development of a plot of land in Austria. This land was the site of a massacre during the final days of World War II, and Yoel demands that excavations must continue until the remains of those killed can be found and laid to rest in a Jewish cemetery. The fact that two witnesses to the massacre – one a survivor and the other one of the perpetrators – were murdered on their way to testify adds another layer of urgency.
Director- Eran Riklis. Length- 1h 40m
