About the Film
The film is based on the best-selling novel, "The Prime Ministers", published in 2010 by former Ambassador Yehuda Avner. Ambassador Avner is a very dynamic figure and he is featured prominently in the film. The Prime Ministers is the first and only insider account of Israeli politics from the founding of the Jewish State. It reveals stunning details of life-and-death decision-making, top-secret military operations and high level peace negotiations. Part 1 brings viewers into the orbits of world figures, including Menachem Begin, Yitzhak Rabin, Ronald Reagan, Jimmy Carter, Henry Kissinger, Yasser Arafat and Margaret Thatcher. The Prime Ministers is an enthralling political film, and a precisely crafted prism through which to view current Middle East affairs.
