“...essential viewing” – The Hollywood Reporter
Twenty years after the assassination that plunged Israel and the peace process into turmoil, Rabin In His Own Words is a moving firsthand account of the late prime minister and statesmen’s dramatic life story. Through a combination of rare recordings and documents, Yitzhak Rabin narrates his own biography; from his childhood in Tel Aviv as the son of a labor leader before the founding of the State of Israel, to farm worker, through to his service in the Israel Defense Force and his later diplomatic and political career.
These candid public and private thoughts from a famously introverted personality illuminate the lesser known chapters of Rabin’s story, as well as some of the most critical junctures of the Jewish State. Winner of the Best Israeli Documentary Award at the Haifa International Film Festival.
Join us in Melbourne and Sydney on Yitzhak Rabin Memorial Day, 13 November, for a brief memorial ceremony between screenings.
