77:78 On The Map

“We are on the map! And we are staying on the map – not only in sports, but in everything.” – Tal Brody, Maccabi Tel Aviv Captain

1977 is a tough year for Israel. But among the tensions with Palestine and the resignation of Prime Minister Rabin, something unexpected happens: Maccabi Tel Aviv, a fairly average basketball team, manage to take on the rest of the world in the European Cup. From the David and Goliath match against the Soviet Union and the centuries of bad blood flowing onto the court, to the unbelievable events unfolding behind the scenes, the odds were clearly against Maccabi. And what happened next changed history.

Award-winning filmmaker Dani Menkin (Dolphin Boy) tackles one of the most significant moments in Israel’s sporting history. What began as a simple sporting event became a triumphant symbol for Israel itself.
