BJFF Kickoff: “On the Map” with The Boston Globe’s Dan Shaughnessy and Israeli Basketball Legend Tal Brody

Top Pick November 6, 2016 Newton $180.00

On the Map tells the story of the 1977 Maccabi Tel Aviv basketball team that brought the first European Cup to Israel and became “The Team of the Nation.”

Still demoralized after the 1973 Yom Kippur War, Israel was hungry for a collective uplifting event. On the Map, a fast-moving, emotional and awe-inspiring documentary, recounts the story of how one Tel Aviv team no one thought could win toppled the four-time defending European Champions and put Israel firmly on the map. Featuring interviews with the Jewish American athletes who made history, 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, thrills fans of the game and captures the spirit of a nation triumphant and victorious against all odds.

The Boston Globe sports columnist Dan Shaughnessy will join Israeli basketball legend Tal Brody and director Dani Menkin in person.
