Part 1/4 – Ariel Sharon – The Legend Behind The Man

Part 1/4 – Ariel Sharon – The Legend Behind The Man

Thirty minutes of Sharon, Ariel Sharon. An Israeli hero, a man whose soldiers affectionately called “The King of Israel”. A man who was called a bulldozer both by his admirers, as well as by his opponents within his nation, the Arab world’s “butcher from Sabra and Shatilla”, the black sheep of the international press. So many names to describe and reveal a complex and controversial personality. The film that includes exclusive interviews with Sharon’s close friends and colleagues reveals another side of the man rarely seen in public. Wounded in battle, the film also covers his personal dramas and his political and military roles. The film delves into the extraordinary and tragic fate of Ariel Sharon, from his childhood in the moshav (cooperative village) of Kfar Malal, north of Tel Aviv, his military exploits and finally, his last years as a leader of the government in Jerusalem, a period of time in which he was responsible for two major changes before falling into a coma: the beginning of the disengagement from the territories and the division of the Liked Party which he established.
