Toronto Jewish Film Festival: King Bibi
May 9 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
King Bibi: The Life and Performances of Benjamin Netanyahu.
Listed by The Washington Post as one of six great international films to anticipate. Using footage from countless TV appearances, Dan Shadur (Before the Revolution) meticulously charts Benjamin Netanyahu’s evolution from an awkward Israeli spokesperson in Washington to a polished, media-savvy individual with a politician’s instinct for garnering public support. A student of American public speaking guru Lilyan Wilder, Bibi’s public appearances reflect her teaching and shed light on his ascent to becoming Israel’s second-longest-serving Prime Minister. Shadur’s film is a riveting study of a cunning politician, and also a powerful work of history and portrait of a nation.
