Read Storyline


Over the nearly seven decades of its existence, the Mossad has cultivated its image as a daring, all-powerful intelligence agency for which no ‘mission impossible’ exists. The four episodes of The Mossad: Imperfect Spies bring the stories of 24 former spy-chiefs and operatives to the screen for the first time, and with them a first-person perspective of the personal and operational challenges they overcame, the ethical dilemmas they faced and the personal price their chosen career forces them to pay for the rest of their lives.





Many times, something that you see or hear intrigues you, so you start digging a little and suddenly you find a story that you must tell. And then you find yourself invested in a project for years, which was only begun by chance, innocent and unintentional curiosity. That's how it was with the Mossad series.

All of the Mossad's spies are unnamed heroes and this is what attracts me to a project. So, obviously I wanted to make it. I also realized that there has never been a series about the psychological apparatus of Mossad agents, which is of course a “sexy” subject. In retrospect, the idea to make a series like this, encouraging more than twenty Mossad agents, who live in the shadows, to talk in front of a camera, was quite naive. There was a certain kind of innocence and lack of awareness of what it meant and how complex it would be. But it worked out in the end. From the material we shot, we made a ninety-minute film and a four-episode series. The film was screened on Arte Germany and France successfully. When it aired on HOT8, it became the most watched series they ever had. Then Netflix bought it and brought it to viewers everywhere in the world.
