Above and Beyond
Film Screening, followed by talk with Murray Greenfield
7.30pm Tuesday 7 February
Above and Beyond is a feature-length documentary. The film focuses on the foreign airmen (Jewish American pilots) who answered Israel’s call for help in the 1948 War of Independence and their true exploits that ensured Israel’s victory. This film shares new interviews with the pilots, as well as providing stunning aerial footage, to present a fascinating, little-known true tale filled with high emotion, heroism and plenty of chutzpah.
More than a retelling of the 1948 Arab-Israeli War, Above and Beyond examines the motivations of the foreign volunteers – both Jews and non-Jews. As members of Machal (volunteers from abroad), this ragtag band of brothers turned the tide of the war. Above and Beyond was filmed on location in the U.S., Israel and the U.K.
Immediately following the film presentation, Machal Volunteer and author, Murray Greenfield, will speak of his experiences and take questions from the audience. We are delighted to have the opportunity to welcome Murray back to Netanya.
He was one of the founding members of the Association of Americans and Canadians in Israel (AACI), which flourished during the years when he served as executive director.
