A new product of exquisite Israeli filmography, Savena Hijacking (2016) is a documentary directed by Rani Sa'ar creatively deciding to capture the point of view of the surviving female terrorist (18 year old Therese Halsa) from a plane hijacking. This Israeli movie is based on a real story from August 5, 1972, when a terrorist group called Black September led by Ali Abu Sneina hijacked a plane flying from Brussels to Tel Aviv, holding a gun to the pilot's head and taking over the plane demanding the release of many imprisoned Palestinian terrorists. Undercover as plane technicians, a small team of elite Israeli soldiers including Netanyahu and Barak stormed the airplane, killing all but one terrorist and releasing the hostages. Therese Halsa was put in jail for terrorism but only 13 years later she was released in a prisoner swap. This dramatic film brings the story from her perspective as well as some of the perspective of the soldiers', featuring Israel Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu for his experiences in this story.
