Twin Cities Jewish Film Festival presents ‘Aulcie’
Sports Documentary | 75 min | English, Hebrew | English subtitles
October 25 • 7 p.m.
Available to view October 25-28.
Recruited from the courts of Harlem, Aulcie Perry became one of Israel’s greatest athletes after joining Maccabi-Tel Aviv in 1976. He captured the spirit of the nation and under his inspiring leadership, the team won its first European Championship. Shortly after, Aulcie converted to Judaism and moved to Israel, but the dark side of fame led to his downfall. Aulcie shares his story of redemption, while game footage and interviews complete this emotional profile of a superstar who put Israeli basketball on the map.
Join us after the film for a live broadcast followed by a discussion between filmmaker Dani Menkin and local Israelis who witnessed Aulcie’s rise to fame. Moderated by Festival Volunteer/Curator Walter Elias.
