Chevra Cinema: “Above & Beyond” W/ Producer Nancy Spielberg

Chevra Cinema Presents :: “Above & Beyond”

Featuring Q&A W/ Producer Nancy Spielberg


Would you risk everything – your future, your citizenship, even your life – to help a brother in need?

In 1948, just three years after the liberation of Nazi death camps, a group of Jewish American pilots answered a call for help. In secret and at great personal risk, they smuggled planes out of the U.S., trained behind the Iron Curtain in Czechoslovakia and flew for Israel in its War of Independence. As members of Machal – “volunteers from abroad” – this ragtag band of brothers not only turned the tide of the war; they also embarked on personal journeys of discovery and renewed Jewish pride.

ABOVE AND BEYOND is their story.
