The JCC and Buffalo International Jewish Film Festival invite you to screen the film Ben-Gurion, Epilogue. Based on archive material, the film reveals the final years of Israel’s founder, David Ben-Gurion, one of history’s modern leaders through a rare, intimate documentary. It is 1968, and Ben-Gurion is 82 years old. He lives in the seclusion of his home in the desert, remote from all political discourse, which allows him a perspective on the Zionist enterprise. His introspective soul-searching is the focus of this film, and his reflections provide a surprising vision for today’s crucial decisions and for the future of Israel.

View the film independently within the designated 72-hour screening window and then join us for a Community Talkback event on Tuesday, April 13 at 4:00 pm (EST) with Clinton Bailey, the interviewer, who is from Buffalo, NY. Bailey made aliyah to Israel in 1958. He became one of the foremost authorities on the lives and customs of Bedouin tribes living in the Negev and Sinai Peninsula, and met Ben-Gurion through the most unusual of circumstances.

Dinner and a Movie Option:
Add on a delicious Israeli meal prepared by Buffalo Kosher Gourmet. Curbside pick-up available at the JCC Benderson Family Building or delivery for an additional charge.  Must order one week in advance of event date. For more information visit BK Gourmet.
