Yuval Rabin, Son of the Late Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, to Appear at the Circle Cinema

Aired on Tuesday, September 20th.

On this edition of ST, our guest is Yuval Rabin, son of the late Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, who will appear at the Circle Cinema tonight (Tuesday the 20th) as part of the 3rd Annual Oklahoma Jewish Film Festival. This event is a special screening-plus-Q&A gathering co-presented by the Circle Cinema, the Jewish Federation of Tulsa, and the Sherwin Miller Museum of Jewish Art. Mr. Rabin will present -- and then answer questions about -- a documentary film concerning his late father's life and work; the film is "Rabin In His Own Words," and it will be shown at 7pm (with a questions-and-answer session to follow). As we learn on today's show, the film is an "autobiography" of sorts, with the narration being offered entirely in Yitzhak Rabin's own voice. By way of rare archival footage, home movies, and private letters, the assassinated leader's personal, professional, and political dramas unfold -- both movingly and unforgettably -- before the viewer's very eyes.

Rich Fisher passed through KWGS about thirty years ago, and just never left. Today, he is the general manager of Public Radio Tulsa, and the host of KWGS’s public affairs program, StudioTulsa, which celebrated its twentieth anniversary in August 2012 . As host of StudioTulsa, Rich has conducted roughly four thousand long-form interviews with local, national, and international figures in the arts, humanities, sciences, and government. Very few interviews have gone smoothly. Despite this, he has been honored for his work by several organizations including the Governor's Arts Award for Media by the State Arts Council, a Harwelden Award from the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa, and was named one of the “99 Great Things About Oklahoma” in 2000 by Oklahoma Today magazine.
