Synopsis: In 1968, David Ben-Gurion gave a six-hour interview to a British crew that was lost for decades. "Ben Gurion, Epilogue" restores that footage to present an intimate view of Israel's founding Prime Minister at 82, five years before his death. From his secluded home in the desert kibbutz Sde Boker, Ben-Gurion speaks candidly about Zionism, his political career, and his hopes for Israel's future. (70 mins)
