Operation Wedding
Southampton Arts Center
Southampton, NY
Share this event:


Leningrad, 1970. A group of young
Soviet Jews who were denied exit
visas, plots to hijack an empty plane
and escape the USSR.
It started as a fantasy, Operation
Wedding, as outrageous as it was
simple: Under the disguise of a trip
to a local family wedding, the group
members would buy every ticket
on a small 12-seater plane, so there
would be no passengers but them, no
innocents in harms way. The groups
pilot would take over the controls and
fly the 16 runaways into the sky, over
the Soviet border, on to Sweden, bound
for Israel.
Caught by the KGB a few steps from
boarding, they were sentenced to years
in the gulag and two were sentenced to
death; they never got on a plane.
While the Soviet press writes the
criminals received their punishment,
tens of thousands of people in the free
world demand Let My People Go! and
as the Iron Curtain opens a crack for
300,000 Soviets Jews wanting to flee,
the group members are held back to
pay the price of freedom for everyone
else.
45 years later, filmmaker Anat
Zalmanson-Kuznetsov reveals the
compelling story of her parents,
leading characters of the group,
heroes in the West but terrorists
in Russia, even today.
