Shortly before her passing, Golda Meir was interviewed for Israeli television. After shooting ended, the cameras kept rolling, recording an intimate talk with the first and only woman to ever govern the State of Israel. As she lit one cigarette after another, Golda spoke freely, pleading her case for her term as Prime Minister – five turbulent years [1969-74] that secured her place in history, albeit at a high personal cost. Based on these never-before seen materials, testimonies of supporters and opponents and rare archival footage, Golda tells the story of Meir’s dramatic and eventful premiership – from her surprising rise to power and iconic international stature as “queen of the Jewish people”, to her tragic and lonely demise.
A fascinating portrayal of this larger than life historical figure who invoked so much emotion and controversy, MNFF Selects is proud to present the Vermont premiere of Golda on Sunday, March 5 at 2pm at Town Hall Theater.
