THE MOSSAD: IMPERFECT SPIES
by Duki Dror
A few years after the Holocaust, the capture of Nazi war criminal, Adolf Eichmann, had set the myth of the Israeli Mossad – Israel's foreign intelligence agency. Mossad agents were perceived as larger-than-life, inglorious bastards who would do anything, even recruit ex-Nazi commanders, in order to obliterate the enemy. Decades later, the Mossad is a powerful organization of a strong regional power. How did the Mossad turn in to one of the most mythical intelligence agencies of our time? For years the Mossad has been sealed off to the media. Now, for the first time since its founding, a dozen of Mossad's former spies are interviewed. In intimate testimonies, they give us a first-hand recount into their inner work and their moral dilemmas.

"Imperfect Spies – an apt twist on le Carre’s novel A Perfect Spy – does indeed tell the story of what life is like for people working in an unusual and deeply flawed profession."
