Award-winning filmmaker and Penn State assistant professor Boaz Dvir tells the stories of ordinary people who, under extraordinary circumstances, transform into trailblazers and game changers. For instance, his PBS film, A Wing and a Prayer, recounts a World War II flight engineer’s transformation into the leader of a secret operation to save newborn Israel.
Dvir, who is writing a book for Rowman & Littlefield about this 1948 operation, is in post-production on Cojot, a feature documentary that tells the story of a French banker who set out to kill former Nazi officer Klaus Barbie and ended up playing a pivotal role in Israel’s 1976 Operation Entebbe; and Discovering Gloria, about an inner-city schoolteacher who becomes a highly effective innovator and national model.
Dvir’s critically acclaimed films also include Jessie’s Dad, which captures an uneducated truck driver’s transformation into a national child-protection activist.
Dvir teamed up with Retro Report to produce a short documentary, “How Special Ops Became Central to the War On Terror,” for The New York Times.
Lifetime and Investigation Discovery have incorporated footage from Dvir’s documentaries into their programs. His films have received coverage by such media as the Huffington Post, Haaretz, MSNBC, the New York Post, The Miami Herald, Stars and Stripes, the Los Angeles Jewish Journal, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency and Florida magazine.
