Air Born

The Edward S. Finkelstein Harrisburg Jewish Film Festival

Documentary (Israel, 2022, 69 minutes, Hebrew w/ subtitles)

Written and directed by Yoram Ivry

A fascinating, unexpected story: that of the children who grew up on Israeli Air Force bases in the 1960s and ‘70s. In a civilian housing complex surrounded by a military base where his father was a fighter pilot, director Yoram Ivry recalls a childhood where runways were for bicycling and fighter jets were for climbing, where he and his peers felt protected, secure, and free. Other children from that time, now middle-aged and beyond, recount these times in interviews that reveal a darker reality as well: what it was like to grow up in the shadow of wars, where heroic, larger-than-life, dashing pilot fathers took to the skies and, sometimes, didn’t come home.
