The Spy Behind Home Plate (2019)

In this first ever feature-length documentary about the enigmatic Morris “Moe” Berg, award-winning filmmaker Aviva Kempner again focuses her camera on a little-known Jewish hero and tells a story that’s gone heretofore unheard. The Spy Behind Home Plate is a documentary about a very private and little-remembered Jewish catcher during baseball’s golden age who joined the Office of Strategic Services (a wartime intelligence agency that would later become the CIA) to spy for the U.S. on the Nazis’ atomic bomb program.  From the streets of Newark to five major league teams (he played professional ball for the Brooklyn Robins, Chicago White Sox. Cleveland Indians, Washington Senators and Boston Red Sox) to his secret life spying during WWII,  Berg’s improbable story is told with rare historical footage and revealing interviews with family and an All-Star roster from the worlds of history, sports and spy craft.
