In this first ever feature-length documentary about the enigmatic Moe Berg, Aviva Kempner again focuses her camera on a little-known Jewish hero. From the streets of Newark to five major league teams during baseball’s Golden Age to his secret life spying for the OSS during WWII, Berg’s improbable story is told with rare historical footage and revealing interviews with family and an All-Star roster from the worlds of history, sports and spy craft.
Officially released to theatres in May 2019, award-winning filmmaker Aviva Kempner’s newest documentary will screen more than fifty times at various Jewish Film Festivals across the United States and Canada
