NJJFF: The Spy Behind Home Plate
20th Annual New Jersey Jewish Film Festival
For the safety and health of our community, it has become necessary to postpone our 20th Annual New Jersey Jewish Film Festival set to begin on Thursday, March 19. We will reschedule the films when we know we can do so safely. We expect that the modified festival will include screenings throughout the summer, September and October. All purchased tickets will be exchangeable once the new dates are confirmed.
Please contact Sarah Diamond with any questions: (973) 929-2938 or [email protected]
Director: Aviva Kempner
2019 • 101 minutes • USA / English
Award-winning filmmaker Aviva Kempner highlights the life of a little-known Jewish hero: the enigmatic Morris “Moe” Berg. He went from the streets of Newark to playing for five Major League teams during baseball’s Golden Age to his secret life spying for the OSS during World War II. Berg’s improbable story is told with rare historical footage and revealing interviews with family and notables from the worlds of history, sports, and espionage.
