‘The Skyjacker’s Tale’ Opens
September 7, 2017 @ 7:00 pm
From award-winning Canadian filmmaker Jamie Kastner comes “The Skyjacker’s Tale,” a documentary that gives unprecedented access to one of the top five, most-wanted U.S. fugitives in Cuba. Ishmael Muslim Ali (formerly LaBeet) is the American convicted of murdering eight people on a Rockefeller-owned golf course in the U.S. Virgin Islands. After years of trying to get his conviction overturned, he took matters into his own hands and hijacked an American Airlines plane full of passengers to Cuba on New Year’s Eve 1984, and he got away with it. Until now.
After 30 years on the FBI’s most wanted list, is he a heartless criminal or a victim? The audience must decide. Film opens today.
