Shamir: War, Peace and a Dream (Shamir: Milchama, Shalom vChalom)

Shamir: War, Peace and a Dream

This riveting documentary brings together a veritable role call of Israeli politicians and generals to talk about the extraordinary life and legacy of Israel Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir. Interviews with Shamir’s confidants, colleagues and family alongside former Prime Ministers Ehud Barak and Ehud Olmert, who reflect on the bombing of Iraq’s nuclear reactor and the nation’s response to Saddam Hussein’s launch of Scud missiles, complement behind-the-scenes footage and archive.

The little-known personal history of Shamir is revealed onscreen, as director Igal Lerner offers a rare glimpse into Shamir's early years in Poland, his family in Israel, and his leadership of the Stern Gang (Lehi) up through his years as Prime Minister.

Watch: Yair Shamir, the son of Yitzhak Shamir, is in conversation with Noa Cacharel, the sales agent for Shamir: War, Peace & A Dream.
