"Heading Home: The Tale of Team Israel" — FINAL DAY

(Sept. 6-12) — A stirring story of sports, patriotism and personal growth, "Heading Home" charts the underdog journey of Israel’s national baseball team competing for the first time in the World Baseball Classic. After years of defeat, Team Israel is finally ranked among the world’s best in 2017, eligible to compete in the prestigious international tournament. Its line-up included several Jewish-American Major League players (Ike Davis, Josh Zeid and ex-Braves catcher Ryan Lavarnway), most with a tenuous relationship to Judaism — not to mention never having set foot in Israel. Their odyssey takes them from Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, where they are greeted as heroes, to Seoul, where they must debunk their has-been reputations. A Menemsha Films release.

A film by Seth Kramer, Daniel A. Miller and Jeremy Newberger.
