EXCLUSIVE: Deadline can reveal the first teaser for Guy Nattiv’s biopic Golda starring Helen Mirren as Israel’s iconic Prime Minister Golda Meir ahead of its world premiere at the Berlinale next week (Feb 20).
“As someone who grew up with Golda as a heroic myth, almost beyond human, and as the only female prime minister in the history of the Middle East, I want people to see how Helen adds a brilliant layer of soul, wisdom, humor and courage to the character of Golda,” Israeli Oscar-winning director Nattiv told Deadline.
“She turns her into a flesh and blood human, capturing the impossible situation Golda faced, all while secretly undergoing cancer treatments,” he continued.
“Golda was the wrong person at the wrong time in the wrong place, leading a country on the verge of destruction. It is still today considered a huge trauma for Israelis. Our film is a deep dive into this tragedy.”
