DOCUMENTARY
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.

This film is brought to you by Deborah and Wayne Zuckerman
