On the Map

ON THE MAP tells the against-all-odds story of Maccabi Tel Aviv’s 1977 win of the European Cup. Through the conduit of sports, ON THE MAP tells a much broader story of Israel and the Jewish people during the Cold War. The film recounts how the underdog Israeli team prevailed over CSKA Moscow (known in the West as “Red Army”) – a team that refused to play against Israel. Moments after this highly charged and historical win, American player Tal Brody captured the heart of the young nation when he famously said, “Israel is ON THE MAP, not just in sport, but in everything.”  ON THE MAP is a documentary written and directed by Israeli Academy Award winner filmmaker, Dani Menkin and executive-produced by Roberta Grossman and Nancy Spielberg. ON THE MAP features interviews with figures such as Michael Oren, Natan Sharansky and NBA legends Bill Walton and David Stern.
