The Skyjacker's Tale

April 201775 minutes
Documentary

Ishmael Muslim Ali is an American convicted of murdering eight people on a Rockefeller-owned golf course in the US 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 Years Eve 1984. Thirty years on the FBI’s most wanted list and against the backdrop of his looming extradition to serve eight consecutive life sentences in the US, THE SKYJACKER'S TALE recounts the hijacking, re-examines his original trial, and reveals a gross miscarriage of justice. Is he a heartless criminal or a victim; the audience must decide. What emerges, however, is a picture of American government and law enforcement that is shockingly similar to the headlines of today.
