"Munich '72 And Beyond" Reveals Shocking New Details Of A Tragedy Whose Legacy Lives On 40 Years Later

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) This week people all over the world will pause to honor the memory of the 11 Israeli athletes and coaches killed in a terrorist attack on September 5th at the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich. As the 44th anniversary of this violent tragedy approaches, a timely new documentary, "Munich '72 and Beyond," shares new revelations and emotional interviews, calling attention to details forgotten, ignored, or obscured for more than 40 years.

"Munich '72 and Beyond" delves deeper into the sequence of events which occurred during the terrorist attack and gives a voice to the family members whose lives were forever changed that day. The documentary culminates with a look at plans for a memorial on the grounds of the Munich Olympic Stadium honoring those who lost their lives that tragic day.

A Production by The Foundation for Global Sports Development, "Munich '72 and Beyond" is directed by the award-winning filmmaker Stephen Crisman and produced by Dr. Steven Ungerleider and David Ulich, with Executive Producer Michael Cascio. "Munich '72 and Beyond" will make its Los Angeles premiere at the LA Shorts Fest on September 2nd at 3:15 PM. The 2016 LA Shorts Fest is taking place September 1st through September 8th at Regal Cinemas L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California.

Producers David Ulich and Dr. Steven Ungerleider have a unique 38-year connection to the Olympics. Both are members of the USOC Foundation Board of Trustees, working closely for years with the Olympic movement and sports federations, including the International Olympic Committee. Ungerleider has authored five books on Olympic history, including the fall of East Germany and the entire doping regime. Their close ties to the Munich victims' families along with their Olympic connections have allowed them, in collaboration with Stephen Crisman, unprecedented access to this story, their subjects and the new evidence in the case. They felt the need to share this story of courage and strength so that as Ankie Spitzer explains in the film, "Let us not forget what happened here in 1972 so that it will never happen again."
