Yitzhak Rabin’s son to visit Tulsa

Yuval Rabin, son of the late Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, will present a screening of Rabin in His Own Words on September 20 at the Circle Cinema as part of the Third Annual Oklahoma Jewish Film Festival.

The event is in conjunction with the Jewish Federation of Tulsa and the Sherwin Miller Museum of Jewish Art.. Yuval Rabin will have a question and answer session with the audience after a 7 p.m. screening of the film.

Rabin In His Own Words is an “autobiography” of sorts, the story is told entirely in Rabin’s own voice. Through a combination of rare archival footage, home movies and private letters, his personal and professional dramas unfold before the viewer’s eyes – from his childhood as the son of a labor leader before the founding of the State of Israel, through a change of viewpoint that turned him from a farmer into an army man who stood at some of the most critical junctures in Israeli history, through his later years during which he served as Prime Minister and made moves that enraged a large portion of the public, until the horrific moment when his political career and life were suddenly brought to an end.

The Circle Cinema is Tulsa’s only running historic movie theatre, showing independent, foreign and documentary films.
