The Tropic is proud to partner with the Key West Film Festival! We’ll be your hosts for Festival screenings November 20-24. Until then, we will be offering a series of “Festival Pop-Ups”—screenings in the spirit of both the Tropic and the KWFF.
In this first-ever feature-length documentary about the enigmatic Morris “Moe” Berg, award-winning filmmaker Aviva Kempner (“Rosenwald,” “The Life and Times of Hank Greenberg”) again focuses her camera on a little-known Jewish hero. From the streets of Newark to five major league teams during baseball’s Golden Age to his secret life spying for the OSS 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 spycraft.
