Award-winning Israeli filmmaker Dani Menkin will present and discuss a special screening of his new documentary, 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 an uplifting event, and opportunity came with a Tel Aviv team that no one thought could win, but that toppled the defending European Champions, putting Israel firmly on the map. Featuring interviews with the Jewish American athletes who made history and NBA icons Bill Walton and David Stern, this fast-paced film combines pulse-pounding action with Cold War politics and triumph against all odds. Writer/Producer/Director: Dani Menkin. (Israel/US 2016) 85 min. plus discussion.
