This October, a series of online film screenings have been taking place organised by the Embassy of Israel in Cyprus within the context of the 60th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries. The final film was released on Wednesday and can be viewed until Sunday, and is a documentary called Ben Gurion. Epilogue.
The film on Israel’s founder and first prime minister David Ben-Gurion, described as one of modern history’s greatest leaders, is available via the link https://vimeopro.com/go2films/embassy-of-israel-nicosia-special-screening-ben-gurion-epilogue. To access it, enter the password: CypBen.
Based on archive material, the film reveals the final years of Ben-Gurion’s life. 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 the film, and his clear voice provides a surprising vision for today’s crucial decisions and the future of Israel.
