As a young woman, Golda Meir was warned by her father not to be too ambitious because “men don’t like smart girls.” She went on to disregard his advice completely. Often referred to as the “only man” in Ben Gurion’s cabinet, Golda had a long and influential political career in Israel. In 1969, at the age of 71, Golda became the first and only woman to serve as Israeli Prime Minister. The five years of Golda’s reign were far from peaceful as she led Israel through the War of Attrition, the rise of the Israeli Black Panther movement, and the violent escalation between the Israelis and Palestinians. She also saw her nation through one of its most catastrophic events, the infamous Yom Kippur War of 1973, which would bring about Golda’s political demise and forever taint her legacy. But the full story of Golda Meir is far more complex than the story of one war. Featuring never-before-seen footage of the former prime minister, GOLDA aims to capture this controversial historical figure from all angles. Whether you love her or hate her, you’ll find that Golda Meir was a force to be reckoned with. (In English and Hebrew with subtitles) — G.S.
