The film division of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, was created to produce theatrical documentaries to educate both national and international audiences. It focuses on the 3,500-year old Jewish experience as well as contemporary human rights and ethics issues.
Ambassador Yehuda Avner is an Israeli former diplomat and prime ministerial advisor. He wrote THE PRIME MINISTERS which is the first and only insider account of Israeli politics from the founding of the Jewish State to the near-present day.
The Prime Ministers, Moriah Films’ thirteenth production, looks at six decades of Israel’s history—from its founding until the early 21st century. Based on the best-selling book by Ambassador Yehuda Avner, the documentary takes the audience inside epic moments in the lives of Israel’s Prime Ministers, bringing to life never before revealed stories about Levi Eshkol, Golda Meir, Yitzhak Rabin, Menachem Begin, and Shimon Peres as well as Presidents Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter. Personalities ranging from Henry Kissinger, Margaret Thatcher and Moshe Dayan to Harry Truman, Anwar Sadat, and Princess Diana appear in The Prime Ministers.
