Follow Me: the Yoni Netanyahu Story
Los Angeles Premiere Documentary/USA/84 minutes/2011
Directed by Ari Daniel Pinchot & Jonathan Gruber
This poignant biography looks at modern-day hero Yonatan Netanyahu, an elite army commando killed in Operation Entebbe and brother of current Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The film draws on his own prophetic writings that reveal deep-rooted introspection, human frailty and heartfelt passions. The journey comes to a fateful crossroads in July 1976 as Netanyahu leads an audacious raid to rescue Israeli hostages from a hijacked flight at Ugandas Entebbe Airport. Newly revealed archival materials and surprisingly intimate interviews with Prime Minister Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak, feature prominently. This film is the collaboration of director Jonathan Gruber (Jewish Soldiers in Blue & Gray, LAJFF 2011)
