Dayan: The First Family Documentary
Monday & Tuesday, August 17-24 | 1:30pm-3:30pm
Presented by Martin Pear JCC, Scottsdale, AZ
Known as “the Israeli Kennedy’s,” the Dayan family has been a prominent presence in Israeli politics and culture since the country’s inception. In her riveting documentary series, director Anat Goren examines five generations of Israel’s first family and the giant shadow cast by its famous patriarch, Moshe. Recounting their stories for the camera, various members of the clan offer an uncompromising glimpse into this Israeli dynasty, blessed with talent and charisma but plagued by depression. Producing some of the country’s most famous politicians, rock stars, poets and directors, the history of the Dayans and that of the country they inhabit are inextricably bound together.
