Celebrating Israeli Independence

Israeli Independence Day (Yom Ha'atzmaut) is an Israeli national holiday celebrated annually to mark the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948 after a long struggle for sovereignty. As a day of great significance for Israelis, it celebrates their independence, freedom, and national identity: an opportunity to reflect on the history, culture, and achievements of Israel and its people, and to reaffirm the commitment to the country's continued success and prosperity.

TheArchive pays homage to Israel and it's many contributions to the world whether it be, to name a few, technological, cultural, or strategic. We distribute many powerful films spotlighting Israel, remembering the Holocaust, and sharing inspiring stories of history, progress, and the leaders behind the rise of this very influential nation.

One particular documentary and its subjects we wanted to spotlight on this reverential occasion is The Prime Ministersbased on Yehuda Avner's best-selling book.

This documentary observes the offices of Israel's prime ministers revealing details behind some of the most important events of the 20th century. Academy Award winning Richard Trank (The Long Way Home) directs. Narrators include Sandra Bullock, Michael Douglas, Leonard Nimoy, and Christoph Waltz.

In the sequel, The Prime Ministers: Part II, we meet Yitzhak Rabin, Israel's first natively-born prime minister, while examining the administration of the subsequent prime minister, Menachem Begin.
