Revisiting The History: Documentary Film On The Israeli Founder Screened In Yangon


The Israeli Documentary Film, “Ben-Gurion, Epilogue” was screened at Myanmar Motion Picture Organization Cinema on Thursday.
        The film reveals the late years of Israel’s founder, David Ben-Gurion. He is one of Zionism movement’s biggest icons and one of the modern history greatest leaders.
        The film is released in 2016 after finalizing the documentary based only on archive materials, newsreels of the time, rare and reconstructed films gathered from various archives, radio recordings and photographs.
        Ambassador, Embassy of Israel (Yangon), H.E. Daniel Zonshine said “We’ve shown 7 documentary films on Israel history but not on this subject. We wanted to show it to the people of Myanmar, something on the history of Israel, through the film of the first Prime Minister, founder of the Israel.”
        The film revisits Ben-Gurion’s outlook and prophecy. The documentary film includes the footage of the conversation between Myanmar Prime Minister U Nu and David Ben-Gurion and his historic visit to Myanmar.
        Chairperson, U Nu Daw Mya Yi Foundation, Than Than Nu said “I decided to join the event with the invitation of the ambassador of Israel in Yangon. U Nu’s offer for bilateral negotiation with Israel and Myanmar was the first of the very few countries at that time. My Father, U Nu, went to Israel in 31st May 1955. The founder of Israel Ben-Gurion also came to Myanmar wearing Myanmar traditional clothing and the president welcomed him. My father was amazed by how rapid Israel improved in agriculture despite the fact that it hadn’t been long since its independence.”
