    Saturday Night Film Festival - "Rabin in His Own Words" - Israel 2015

    Motzei Shabbat, Nov 17th 7:00p to 10:00p
    Hebrew with English subtitles. 110 Minutes. Documentary. Directed by Erez Laufer. Twenty years after his assassination, Yitzhak Rabin himself tells his dramatic life story. RABIN IN HIS OWN WORDS is an "autobiography" of sorts: the story is told entirely in Rabin's own voice. Through a combination of rare archival footage, home movies and private letters, his personal and professional dramas unfold before the viewer's eyes - from his childhood as the son of a labor leader before the founding of the State of Israel, through a change of viewpoint that turned him from a farmer into an army man who stood at some of the most critical junctures in Israeli history. Through a brilliant diplomatic career as Israeli Ambassador to the United States and his entry into the Israeli political arena, and through his later years during which he served as Prime Minister, opposition leader, Minister of Defense and Prime Minister once more, in which he made moves that enraged a large portion of the public, until the horrific moment when his political career and life were suddenly brought to an end. Discussion and refreshments follow.
