Special events following the exhibition The Last Photograph / What If? Ehud Barak on War and Peace (Hebrew)
Docu-Evening: Ran Tal’s Films
“The Last Photograph” is a first-of-its-kind exhibition at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, comprised of a documentary film by Ran Tal. The viewers encounter the archive of the father of Israeli photojournalism, Micha Bar-Am, disassembled and re-edited into a multi-channel video installation. The exhibition raises a renewed debate about the set frame of narrative cinema, alongside a discussion of the gap between the documentary material presented to the viewers and the words of the interviewees who look back. A unique series of encounters following the exhibition brings together director Ran Tal and the Museum visitors.
At each encounter one of Tal’s films will be screened, preceded by a preliminary talk by the director.
Viewers are invited to an independent tour of the exhibition before each encounter.

Screening of the documentary What If? Ehud Barak on War and Peace (Ran Tal, 2020)
Can a leader succeed in influencing the world and shaping reality? Or is he, as any other human being, only a nutshell tossed to the waves of history; with no ability to affect it? 20 years after he was forced to resign from the premiership, due to the failure of the Camp David 2000 conference, 78-year-old Barak observes the history of the State of Israel and asks: "What if?"
