'Heading Home: The Tale of Team Israel/ Wendy's Shabbat' Presented by LA Jewish Film Festival
HEADING HOME: The Tale of Team Israel
Los Angeles Premiere!
Documentary/Israel/Japan/USA/South Korea/2017/85 minutes
Directed by Daniel Miller, Jeremy Newberger, Seth Kramer

A stirring story of sports, patriotism and personal growth, HEADING HOME charts the underdog journey of Israels national baseball team competing for the first time in the World Baseball Classic. After years of defeat, Team Israel finally ranks among the worlds best in 2017, eligible to play in the prestigious international tournament. Their line-up included several Jewish American Major League playersIke Davis, Josh Zeid and ex-Braves catcher Ryan Lavarnwaymost with a tenuous relationship to Judaism, and never having set foot in Israel. Their odyssey takes them from Tel Aviv and Jerusalem where they are greeted as heroes, to Seoul where they must debunk their has-been, wannabe reputations. As their Mensch on a Bench mascot tags along, the team does much soul-searching, discovering the pride of representing Israel on the world stage.

Q&A with Jenn Decker, wife of Cody Decker and former journalist for Sports Illustrated
Sponsored by Shirley and Phil Sniderman & Susan and Mike Vizvary 

Preceded by
WENDY'S SHABBAT
Documentary/USA/2017/10 minutes
Directed by Rachel Myers

This uplifting film is about a group of Jewish senior citizens who celebrate the weekly Sabbath at the local Wendys fast food restaurant in Palm Desert. It is a story of rediscovering the joys of friendship and community again in older age, and in the longing for ritual, however unorthodox it may appear.
