Philadelphia Jewish Film and Media
As one of the leading advocates for the State of Israel, Menachem Begin’s history is a vast display of extraordinary moments, from his founding of the Likkud party to the signing of a historic peace deal with Egypt. All these years later, the crazy, complicated life of the former Israeli Prime Minister is brought back into the picture. UPHEAVAL, featuring perceptive interviews with historians and everyday Israeli citizens just walking up the street, is distinctive in its permission for honest but thought-provoking discussion over Begin’s legacy. Fast-paced with remarkable archival footage and carefully explained facts from a multitude of talking heads, this captivating documentary transports us back to the Begin years and its brilliant, complex, and passionate leader.
UPHEAVAL will screen Wednesday, April 26, 7 PM at the Weitzman National Museum of American Jewish History. Featuring special guest Rob Schwartz, Executive Producer of the film. For tickets and info, email PJFM at email@example.com.
