Touching the Sky
Army Documentaries • 1h 5m
Female Israeli soldiers have had the right to apply to flight school for over twenty years. But only few have earned their wings, with the issue of gender still a major topic for cadets, officers and within society at large. We follow the young women who made it to the IAF’s most exclusive program, during the first six tense and intense months. From their first day at the academy through the ruthless cuts - some will stay the course but most will have to leave.
