About The Film
Brilliantly assembled entirely of footage from countless TV appearances, KING BIBI: THE LIFE AND PERFORMANCES OF BENJAMIN NETANYAHU charts the ascent of Israel's media-savvy prime minster. As his political fortunes rose, Bibi quickly perfected his skills as a master of public speaking and media manipulation. Through four decades of news conferences, interviews and speeches, Israel's second longest-serving prime minster exhibits an obsessive, near-faultless execution of public image. Netanyahu's quintessentially American style of politicking is paralleled with that of Donald Trump and their similar love-hate relationship with the press. Deconstructing the man who singlehandedly ushered Israeli politics into the 21st century, this potent portrayal reveals a controversial politician's instinct for seizing power through the art of communication.
