This ragtag band of brothers not only turned the tide of the war, preventing the possible annihilation of Israel at the very moment of its birth; they also laid the groundwork for the Israeli Air Force.
You will not believe what these men did!
The first major feature-length documentary about the foreign airmen in the War of Independence, Above and Beyond brings together new interviews with pilots from the ’48 War, as well as leading scholars and statesmen, including President Shimon Peres, to present an extraordinary, little-known tale with reverberations up to the present day.
Above and Beyond is currently in production. It is produced by Nancy Spielberg, directed by Roberta Grossman and written by Sophie Sartain. Source: Katahdin Productions
