Jewish Film Series Presents Operation Wedding
In 1970's Leningrad, a group of young Jewish dissidents plots to hijack an empty plane and escape the USSR. Caught by the KGB a few steps from boarding, they were sentenced to years in the Gulag and two were sentenced to death - they never got on a plane. 45 years later, filmmaker Anat Zalmanson-Kuznetsov reveals the compelling story of her parents, leaders of the group, in Operation Wedding. They were known as "heroes" in the West but "terrorists" in Russia, even today. Beth Am congregant Phil Spiegel will introduce the film and lead a discussion afterwards.
This film is free and refreshments will be served.
