A Green Kippah/The Eleventh Day
A Green Kippah
Directed by Sally Mitlas
The film commemorates Israels Memorial Day on a very personal level by chronicling the lives and tragic deaths of three American Jews. All three died in the prime of their lives, whether it be through acts of terrorism, a snipers bullet or defending the borders of Israel. This film reminds us that when Israel loses a son or a daughter, it is felt by every Jew around the world.
The Eleventh Day: the Survivors of Munich 1972
Los Angeles Premiere
Directed by Emanuel Rotstein
German and Hebrew with English subtitles
In a year of the Olympic Games, we remember the tragic attacks on the members of the Israeli Olympic team by Palestinian terrorists at the 1972 Munich Games. The iconic picture of the hooded assassin became a symbol of modern terrorism and the vulnerability of free society. Eleven Israeli athletes were killed during the hostage drama and the botched rescue effort. Eight Israeli athletes were able to escape. Their story has never been heard. Now after four decades these former Olympians once again return to the site of their biggest hopes and darkest fears and tell for the first time how they barely survived and how their lives were changed forever.
