OPERATION WEDDING

Leningrad, 1970. A group of young Soviet Jews who were denied exit visas, plots to “hijack” an empty plane and escape the USSR.

Caught by the KGB a few steps from boarding, they were sentenced to years in the gulag and two were sentenced to death; they never got on a plane.

​​​45 years later, filmmaker Anat Zalmanson-Kuznetsov reveals the compelling story of her parents, leading characters of the group, "heroes" in the West but "terrorists" in Russia, even today.

ANAT ZALMANSON-KUZNETSOV

Anat was born in Israel to Sylva Zalmanson and Edward Kuznetsov, leading characters of the Dymshits–Kuznetsov hijacking affair.

She studied filmmaking at the London Film School.

It’s been a long-standing ambition for her to tell the story of her parents in the medium of film and Anat is now developing a script for a feature film based on her father's book "Prison Diaries" and her documentary "Operation Wedding".
