Steal The Sky  

Based on the true story, American-born Israeli spy, Helen Mason, was sent to Iraq to coerce an Iraqi pilot into hijacking a Soviet jet for Israeli defense research.  She seduces pilot Munir Redfa in order to blackmail him – with unexpected results.  They both find themselves falling in love and torn between love and loyalty to their countries. Munir hijacks the plane and in a desperate race against time, flying perilously close to death, this story builds to a terrifying climax. 

English language, 110 minutes, 2006 Production by HBO and Yoram Ben Ami.  
Speaker: Adi Hoter

Sponsors: Jewish Federation of Greater Portland, National Council of Synagogue Youth (NCSY), Albert J. & Esther Menashe, Richard & Judi Matza, Charles & Jo Levy, Ron & Pam Sidis, Renee Ferrera
