COH Film Series: Above & Beyond
May 1, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Adult Education Film Series | 5:00 pm Sunday, May 1 | Above and Beyond. Join us for this intense documentary. Initial release, July 2014. The daredevil pilots’ tale of how they jerrybuilt a fledgling fighting force for Israel is the stuff of high adventure; wild improbabilities and slapdash solutions abound as they overcome all manner of official obstacles. Americans were forbidden to join in the Israeli struggle and faced loss of citizenship and imprisonment. Planes and the armaments they carried had to be bought clandestinely and smuggled out of the country in the raggedy guise of a fictional Panamanian airline. Pilots were recruited by covertly contacting WWII airmen with Jewish-sounding names in secret rendezvous (“Meet a guy with a flower in his lapel on 57th Street”).
