November 7: What If? Ehud Barak on War and Peace screening and Q&A

This film screening and Q&A will take place on Sunday, November 7 at 2 p.m. ET.

Get tickets here.

Can a leader succeed in influencing the world? Ehud Barak is a controversial former prime minister, decorated and criticized commander on the battlefield, and one of the leading figures of the Zionist movement. He is also the initiator of Israel’s plan to assassinate Yasser Arafat. In this remarkable film, Barak observes his own history and that of the state of Israel with disillusioned clarity. This outstanding philosophical essay proposes a deep cinematic reflection on history and decision making.

The film will be followed by live Q+A with director, Ran Tal. Moderated by Jacob Kornbluh, the senior political reporter at the Forward.
