Jews in the News: ‘Above and Beyond’

Jews in the News: ‘Above and Beyond’

Opening theatrically January 30 in
the Village East Cinema in New York, Roberta Grossman‘s “Above and Beyond,” distributed International Film
Circuit, is notably produced by Nancy Spielberg, the sister of Steven. This untold true story of a group of Jewish American pilots who, in
secret and at great personal risk, smuggled planes out of the U.S. and flew them of Israel in its 1948 War of Independence was directed by Nancy Grossman.

Nancy also directed and produced “Hava Nagila: The Movie” which played so well with the
Jewish audiences in the art house theaters in 2012.

Above and Beyond” has played in the Jerusalem Film Festival, Doc NY, and 25 other Jewish film festivals and continues to play on the the festival circuit.

This ragtag band of soldiers not only turned the tide of the war; they also embarked on personal journeys of discovery and renewed Jewish pride. Through
interviews with the pilots and stunning aerial footage “Above and Beyond” presents a fascinating, little-known tale filled with heart, heroism and
high-flying chutzpah. Check it out online at and at an art house near you!
