Rabin In His Own Words / Interview with director - writer Erez Laufer

Rabin In His Own Words / Interview with director - writer Erez Laufer

RABIN IN HIS OWN WORDS is an “autobiography” of sorts, the story is told entirely in Rabin’s own voice. Through a combination of rare archival footage, home movies and private letters, his personal and professional dramas unfold before the viewer's eyes - from his childhood as the son of a labor leader before the founding of the State of Israel, through a change of viewpoint that turned him from a farmer into an army man who stood at some of the most critical junctures in Israeli history. RABIN IN HIS OWN WORDS brings the man - flesh and blood - back to life, if only momentarily. The film combines rare archives that, since they were originally broadcasted 40 years ago, have not been seen or heard, a private 8 mm mostly shot by Rabin, a super 8 mm of Rabin in color in 1948 shot by American couple visiting Israel, and private letters to his sister his father and to his wife Leah. Director Erez Laufer is the co-Editor of two Oscar nominated documentaries: Chris Hegedus and D. A. Pennebak
