Trailers • 2m 25s
"The Prime Ministers: Soldiers and Peacemakers" follows the experiences of Ambassador Yehuda Avner during the years he worked for Prime Ministers Yitzhak Rabin and Menachem Begin. Based on Ambassador Avner's best-selling book, "The Prime Ministers", the film opens in 1974 as Rabin becomes the country's first native born Israeli Prime Minister. It then examines the negotiations for the first bilateral treaty between Israel and Egypt in 1975, the events surrounding Israel's rescue of hostages in Entebbe in 1976, Rabin's tense relationship between newly elected US President Jimmy Carter, and his subsequent resignation after financial scandal involving his wife Leah. The movie also explores Ambassador Avner's decision to work for Menachem Begin after his surprise election as Prime Minister in 1977. It looks at the drama behind Anwar Sadat's historic visit to Jerusalem, the Camp David Accords, Begin's difficult relationship between President Carter and the tense relations that arose between him and President Reagan over the 1982 Lebanon War. Finally, the film recounts Ambassador Avner's return to the staff of Yitzhak Rabin not long before his assassination in 1995, after he had been elected a second time as Israel's Prime Minister. Starring the voices of Michael Douglas as Yitzhak Rabin and Christoph Waltz as Menachem Begin, The Prime Ministers: Soldiers and Peacemakers is full of emotion and rich history with rare, never before seen photos and film footage.
