Description

This fast-moving and awe-inspiring documentary recounts the story of how one Tel Aviv basketball team toppled the four-time defending European Champions and put Israel firmly on the map. On the Map combines the pulse-pounding action of a high-stakes game with an incendiary political situation at the height of the Cold War to deliver a film that honors Israeli heroes, mesmerizes fans of the game and captures the spirit of a nation victorious against all odds.

Underwritten by Beryl and Ivor Silver; Claire and Paul Rosenzweig in memory of Barney Sherman, z”l.
