The Price of Kings: Film 2 features Shimon Peres, the current President, twice Prime Minister of Israel and constant figure in the world news as a world leader with a political career spanning seven decades at the heart of the Middle East conflict.
Our interview with Nobel Peace Prize winner Shimon Peres for the second of our documentary films on leadership ran across two days with an additional three weeks on location in Israel and the West Bank interviewing key political figures, family, allies and adversaries.
What emerged was much more than a biography of Shimon Peres but a powerful political and personal narrative revealing the sacrifices and reality of leadership at the heart of the Israeli-Arab conflict from the other side of The Price of Kings: Film 1 - Yasser Arafat.
From Israeli discrimination against Arab Israelis to the 1948 Israeli War of Independence, the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin, his transition from hawk to dove after establishing Israel’s nuclear program and the failings of the peace process, Shimon Peres doesn’t pull any punches - revealing the unseen price he paid as a world leader.
