Community Wide Movie Event:On the Map
Amidst domestic turmoil and the global machinations of the Cold War, an underdog, Israeli
Basketball Team prevailed over a series of European powers. Combining the pulse-pounding
action of a high-stakes thriller with an incendiary political background, ON THE MAP tells the
against all-odds story of Maccabi Tel Aviv’s 1977 European Championship.
Moments after this highly charged and historic win, Israeli-American basketball hero, Tal Brody,
became an indelible part of a young country’s history when he said, “Israel is ON THE MAP, not
just in sport, but in everything.”
