The Battle Over the Soul - Previews 3 of 3
At the battle of Tel Saki, one of the first of the 1973 Yom Kippur War, a handful of Israeli paratroopers and armored soldiers stood their ground, fighting off thousands of enemy troops for three days with very little food, water and dwindling ammunition. This film, winner of Best Documentary at the Chicago Israeli Film Festival, recounts the courage, heroism and great sacrifice of ordinary young men as they unknowingly -- and against the odds -- play a pivotal role in a critical moment for the State of Israel. Their sheer determination and spirit not to abandon their friends and protect the country they all loved so much saved the State of Israel.
30 Years after the war, Dan Almagor led the one who survived the battle and established the Friendship and Heritage Foundation. The Foundation is dedicated to the memory of their friends, the 35 brave young men who gave their lives to save others. The Foundation focus is to educate the future generation and pass on the values for which they fought: Devotion, Compassion, Determination and Friendship.
