Follow Me: The Yoni Netanyahu Story
Special Film Screening
Sunday, July 29, 2012 at 5:00pm
The story of Operation Entebbe by an elite squad of Israeli Defense Forces has been told numerous times, but perhaps never with the poignancy or insight of Jonathan Gruber and Ari Daniel Pincho!'s documentary Follow Me: The Yoni Netanyahu Story.
The high risk mission to save Israeli hostages held by Arab Terrorists at the Entebbe, Uganda airport has been hailed as an almost miraculous success, but it's sometimes forgotten that it was not without casualties. Gruber and Pinchot tell the story from the perspective of squad leader Yoni Netanyahu, older brother of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The filmmakers masterfully tell the parallel narratives of the planning and execution of the raid alongside Yoni's life story. Personal testimonies from family members (including heartfelt words from Benjamin), Israeli leaders and comrades add context to the gripping archival footage. But the words of Yoni Himself, taken from his letters to family and the women he loved, are what give the story a poetical beauty, enduring and universal truth.
