Israeli film screened at Seoul International Drama Awards E-mail

Israel’s Embassy in South Korea screened an Israeli thriller submitted for the Seoul International Drama Awards 2016 in Seocho-gu, southern Seoul, in August.

Titled Sabena Hijacking: My Version, the 2015 movie is based on a true story about Israeli commandos who rescued passengers held as hostages by the Black September Organization, a Palestinian terrorist group.

Four terrorists from the Black September Organization hijacked Sabena Flight 571, a Boeing 707 jet, on 8 May, 1972, and threatened to blow up the plane if Israel did not free 300 Palestinian terrorists jailed there.

The commandos saved the hostages after the plane made an emergency landing at an airport near Tel Aviv. Two of the commandos were Ehud Barak and Benjamin Netanyahu, who both later became Israeli prime ministers.

The film is among more than 60 films that competed in the TV movie category at the annual Seoul International Drama Awards. The films are from Australia, Bangladesh, Canada, France, Germany, Iran, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Spain, the UK and other countries.
