Munich '72

Munich '72

The chilling story of the 1972 Munich Olympics terror attack is recounted through a unique blend of documentary and dramatization. Supported by newly declassified protocols, this documentary recounts one of the most infamous terror attacks of the 20th century, when a Palestinian militant organization infiltrated the Munich Games Olympic Village. The ensuing political debacle resulted in a botched rescue operation that ended with the deaths of all 11 Israeli hostages. Munich ‘72 reveals the complex decisions facing the Israeli government as they navigated recent statehood, only a few short years after WWII.

New light is shone on the events that transpired through interviews with athletes, security personnel, high-ranking politicians, and experts.
