The late Shimon Peres served the state of Israel his entire adult life, including two separate terms as Prime Minister, as well as President. Now, The Jerusalem Post's Amy Spiro reports that Peres' life and work will be featured in an upcoming documentary, Never Stop Dreaming, narrated by George Clooney:

George Clooney will be the narrator for an upcoming film about the life of former president Shimon Peres.

The film, Never Stop Dreaming: The Life and Legacy of Shimon Peres, is produced by Moriah Films, a division of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, and is slated to premiere in New York in June.

The center told The Jerusalem Post on Wednesday that Clooney recorded his narration several weeks ago and met with Rabbi Marvin Hier, the Wiesenthal Center’s director.

The film is directed and produced by Richard Trank, who managed to record 50 hours of interviews with Peres in the months before his death in September 2016...

Trank has also directed films about Theodor Herzl, Simon Wiesenthal and Winston Churchill. He won an Academy Award in 1997 for The Long Way Home, which followed Jewish refugees after the Holocaust until the establishment of the State of Israel.
