15th Annual Israeli Film Festival20 years have passed since the murder that shook Israel’s government and halted the peace process. A study of rare documents and audio recordings resulted in a unique film, in which Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin himself tells us about his life: his childhood in Tel Aviv, before the government’s creation; his work on a farm; his service in the Israeli Defense Force; and his later diplomatic and political career.The daily life and private musings of Rabin, famous for his introversion, open up little-known corners of his life and illuminates several turning points in the history of Israel’s government. These unique archive materials – home videos on an 8mm camera, his letters to his family, memoirs untouched by censorship, unofficial interviews, and other personal notes – are presented to audiences for the first time after forty years. The best documentary at the Haifa International Film Festival (2015).Best direction at the Buenos Aires International Independent Film Festival (2015); Israeli critics’ pick at the Jerusalem International Film Festival (2014).
