Event Details

A former Entebbe hostage will join Penn State assistant professor Boaz Dvir Sept. 12 at a Philadelphia area rough-cut screening of his feature documentary, “Cojot.” A suspenseful character study, “Cojot” tells the little-known story of Michel Cojot, a Holocaust survivor who ended up playing a pivotal role in one of history’s most daring hostage-rescue operations.

Michel’s son, Olivier Cojot-Goldberg – who, along with his father and 250 other Air France passengers and crew members, was a hostage in Entebbe, Uganda, in 1976 – will join Dvir during the during the post-screening Q&A. The screening – 7-9pm at Beth Chaim Reform Congregation (389 Conestoga Road, Malvern) – is open to the public. Admission is $10. Audiences will have a rare opportunity to provide input on a work-in-progress.

In recent months, the rough cut has been screened to more than 1,300 people in the Northeast. The response to Cojot – which is narrated by Judd Nelson (The Breakfast Club, St. Elmo’s Fire) – has been overwhelmingly positive.
