The Prime Ministers: Soldiers and Peacemakers
The film follows the experiences of the late Ambassador Yehuda Avner during the years he worked for Prime Ministers Yitzhak Rabin and Menachem Begin. With never seen before footage and photos, it examines Rabin’s election in ’74 as the country’s first native born Israeli leader, his negotiating the first bilateral treaty between Israel and Egypt in ’75, the dramatic events surrounding Israel’s rescue of hostages in Entebbe in ’78, the tense relationship between Pres. Jimmy Carter and Rabin, as well as Rabin’s subsequent downfall in a financial scandal involving his wife Leah. It looks at the drama between Anwar Sadat’s historic visit to Jerusalem, the Camp David negotiating process and more through Rabin’s assassination in 1995.
