 On May 8, 1972, four “Black September” terrorists hijacked Sabena Flight 571 from Brussels to Tel Aviv, marking the beginning of thirty nerve-wracking hours of human and political drama. Sabena Hijacking finally shares the untold story of what exactly took place on the flight. It presents a cinematic reenactment of these events, weaving together previously undiscovered recordings and exclusive interviews with the three revered Israeli political leaders who were in charge of the rescue: Benjamin Netanyahu, Ehud Barak, and Shimon Peres. A captivating, fast-paced film full of suspense, posing fundamental political and historical questions that have shaped the Israel of today.


 The event is admission free - everyone is invited! Payment for the screening and lecture is optional, each one pays according to their will and ability, and is intended to support the filmmaker and help us bring the film to as many viewers as possible.
