A SURPRISE PREVIEW SCREENING!
On the Map, a fast-moving, emotional, and awe-inspiring documentary, recounts the story of how the 1977 Maccabee Tel-Aviv basketball team that no one thought could win toppled the four-time defending Soviet team and put Israel firmly on the map. Featuring interviews with the Jewish-American athletes who made history, combined with the pulse-pounding action of a high-stakes game with an incendiary political situation at the height of the Cold War, director Dani Menkin delivers a film that honors Israeli heroes, mesmerizes fans of the game and captures the spirit of a nation triumphant and victorious against all odds.
With special thanks to director Dani Menkin, Nancy Spielberg, and July Holora for permission to preview this film to the Rochester community before its U.S premiere.
