TCJFF Film Screening – King Bibi
September 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$12
Twenty years before the spectacle of Donald Trump, Benjamin Netanyahu already understood the political benefits of a toxic relationship with the media, and direct communication with the public. King Bibi explores Netanyahus rise to power, relying solely on archival footage of his media performances over the years: from his days as a popular guest expert on American TV, through his public confession of adultery, and his mastery of the art of social media. From one studio to another, Bibi evolved from Israels great political hope, to a controversial figure whom some perceive as Israels savior, and others as a cynical politician who will stop at nothing to retain his power.
Presented in partnership with Minneapolis Jewish Federation Israel Center.
Directed by Dan Shadur | 2018 | Documentary | Hebrew and English with English subtitles | 87 minutes
