Off we go into the Israeli blue younder....

**Above and Beyond** is a spirited documentary about the formation of the Israeli Airforce, circa 1948. Produced by Nancy Spielberg, **Above and Beyond** features interviews from surviving aviators and family members. Among the most recognizable faces is Pee Wee Herman (Paul Reubenfeld), whose late father was one of the most heroic pilots of the first wave of Israeli pilots.

Featuring a mix of archive footage seamlessly edited with special effects from Industrial Light and Magic, **Above and Beyond** is thrilling history retold. There is personal loss, but there is also so many life affirming moments of young aviators in search of adventure. It is only through the wisdom of aging, that these young adventurers realized that they accomplished so much more for their family, faith and friends.
