Imprisoned by the Soviets. Orphaned by the Holocaust. Crowned peacemaker by the Nobel Prize Committee. Haunted by the Lebanon War. Menachem Begin was a pillar of the State of Israel, a tireless fighter for the Jewish people, and also a controversial leader. Looking back at his legacy in a new light, one of Israel’s most venerated but complex leaders receives an incisive portrait in this illuminating documentary. With evocative imagery, rarely seen archival materials, and intimate interviews with Israeli, Arab, and American voices, Upheaval portrays this brilliant, tough, loving, and proud man who never compromised when he felt that the survival of Israel and the Jewish people were at stake.

Featuring a special introduction by former U.S. Senator Joe Lieberman.

Accompanying the film premiere is a discussion with director Jonathan Gruber, producers Barry Gurland & Rachel Greenberg, and moderator Dahlia Bendavid. To view the conversation please click here.
