Heading Home: The Tale of Team Israel
Not Rated; some strong language, In English – 87 mins.
Winner of 2018 audience awards for best documentary at the Philadelphia and Washington Jewish film festivals
Heading Home is the David-and-Goliath story of Israel’s national baseball team as it competes for the first time in the World Baseball Classic. After years of crushing defeats, Israel finally ranks among the world’s best in 2017. Its roster includes many Jewish-American major leaguers, most with a tenuous relationship to Judaism, few having set foot in Israel. Their odyssey takes them from the Holy Land to the tournament in South Korea, where they must debunk their reputations as has-beens and wannabes. Watch the trailer.
The film will be introduced by Julie Morris, Spokane Area Jewish Family Services board member, and Hadassah Foundation chair. All attendees are eligible for a drawing to win 2019 Spokane Indians tickets!
