Cafe Shapira - Ralbag 15, Tel Aviv,
** IN HEBREW **
Open the month of April in “Documentary in Shapira”, a week before the election, with the screening of the movie “King Bibi”.
Benjamin Netanyahu’s biography is full of media appearances that helped him fortify his position. Twenty years before Donald Trump’s presidential performance, Netanyahu understood the political benefits of constant confrontations with the media and a direct appeal to the public. With the help of archival materials from his performances over the years, King Bibi reviews his rise to power: from the days when he starred as an expert on terror on American television in the 1980s, through his live confession of the hot tape affair, and until he gained full control of the social networks, The Israeli. From one studio to another, Bibi has become one of the great hopes of Israeli politics for a controversial leader whom many in Israel see as a savior, and others – a politician who will not hesitate to cling to power.
After the film an open discussion will be held with the director of the film, Dan Shador.
