The documentary “On the Map” tells the story of the underdog Israeli basketball team’s triumphant victory at the European championship in 1977. Set against the backdrop of impactful events — including the Yom Kippur War, the Munich Olympics terror attack, the raid on Entebbe, the Cold War, and Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin’s resignation — the film incorporates archival and rare game footage to tell the story of the triumph over the Soviets that put Macabbi Tel Aviv ‘on the map.’ It’s the perfect feel-good movie for the current uncertain times, and you can watch for free this weekend.
“On the Map” will stream on Sunday, Apr. 5 at 11 a.m. PST, followed by a live Q&A with filmmaker Dani Menkin and players Tal Brody and Aulcie Perry, hosted by executive producer Ori Eisen. Register here.
