Live or Die in Entebbe - Myth and Memory

Produced and directed by Eyal Boers


"Live or Die in Entebbe" is a moving documentary about the 1976 hijacking of an Air France flight and Israel's military rescue raid, as told by the nephew of one of the hostages who did not survive. The film chronicles the events that unfolded, day-by-day, and uncovers some little-known and shocking backstories while shedding light on the passengers who did not survive the crisis. A sensitive and riveting look at those for whom Israel's most heroic moment was their family's biggest tragedy.


Through scenes from the film, we explore memory, identity and myth in Israeli society.


Eyal Boers is a filmmaker, researcher and lecturer. He has a BA in Philosophy and Political Science, MFA and MA in Film Studies and has recently submitted his PhD thesis at Tel Aviv University. Since 2011, he has been head of Film track at Ariel University and since 2018 chairman of the Israel Film Council.

Boers has produced and directed the documentaries "Classmates of Anne Frank" and "Live or Die in Entebbe" which have been broadcasted on numerous TV stations and screened in a variety of film festivals.
