A fascinating little-known historical tale is stirringly recounted in Air Born, an inspiring documentary that brings the story of the children who grew up
in Israeli air force bases housing projects of the 1960s and 1970s.


In a civilian housing complex surrounded by a bustling military base where his father served, director Yoram Ivry recalls his childhood protected by a fence and a guard with an endless feeling of freedom and security, full of dramatic events that influenced his life and the lives of so many other children who grew up in the shadow of wars. Celebrating the heroism and derring-do attitude of Israeli pilots, Air Born also touchingly conveys a valuable history lesson that is both informative and inspirational.
