Who Shot My Father? The Story of Joe Alon

On a summer night in 1973, Colonel Joe Alon, the Israeli Air Force Attaché at the Embassy of Israel in Washington, DC, returned home from a party with his wife and was shot and killed in front of his Chevy Chase home while his daughters slept inside. At his funeral in Israel, then Defense Minister Moshe Dayan vowed that Israel would tirelessly pursue Alon’s murderers. And yet, more than 30 years later, this is still a story of international mystery and intrigue. Alon’s three daughters courageously try to uncover the secrets behind the never-solved murder of their father, a Holocaust survivor and one of the founders of the Israeli Air Force. Archival footage and photos along with riveting interviews with FBI agents, Mossad chiefs and other high-ranking personnel are set against a family’s own story of unresolved personal anguish. http://washingtondcjcc.org/center-for-arts/film/WJFF/2011-film-pages/who-shot-my-father.html
