Award-winning Israeli filmmaker Ran Tal (Children of the Sun, The Museum) offers a candid interview with Ehud Barak, Israel’s 10th Prime Minister, as well as the Army Chief of Staff and Minister of Defence. Barak masterminded the attempted assassination of Yasser Arafat, and also participated in the 2000 Camp David summit, the failure of which forced him out of office. As he revisits his role in these and other crucial events, Barak ponders Tolstoy’s question “what if…, ‘ concerning the power of a leader’s decisions to impact the course of history.
