Rabin in his Own Words

Rabin in his Own Words

20 years after his assassination, Yitzhak Rabin himself tells his dramatic life story.

Without commentators or mediators, director Erez Laufer brings to the screen the story of one of Israel’s most prominent leaders in his own words.

Through a combination of rare archive 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, 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, through his later years 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.
