About the Documentary:
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: Under the disguise of a trip to a local family wedding, the group members would buy every ticket on a small plane, so there would be no passengers but them, no innocents in harm’s way.

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.

Light refreshments will be available. Facilitated discussion to follow the screening. Event ends at 12:00 noon.
