The film recounts how an underdog Israeli basketball team in 1977 prevailed over a series of European basketball powers, including CSKA Moscow (known in the West as “Red Army”), a team that repeatedly refused to compete against Israeli competitors. Moments after this highly charged and historic win, Israeli-American basketball hero Tal Brody became an indelible part of a young country's history when he famously said, “Israel is ON THE MAP, not just in sport, but in everything.”

Tal Brody will speak after the film. Visit  https://www.onthemapfilm.com/
