For the first time, witness Prime Minister Golda Meir, the only woman to ever lead Israel, speaks about her turbulent political career. Rare archival footage of a more candid conversation, shot after a television interview, is brought into the public eye for the first time by Sagi Bornstein, Udi Nir, and Shani Rozanes. Hear in her own words about how Golda Meir secured her place as the “Queen of the Jewish people” and of everything that it cost her along the way. This screening is in memory of our dear and loyal friend of the IFF, Marvin Verman.
