Production: What we know about Munich?
- "The attack at Munich by Black September and the Israeli response to it was a defining moment in the modern history of the Middle East," Spielberg stated. "It's easy to look back at historic events with the benefit of hindsight. What's not so easy is to try to see things as they must have looked to people at the time. Viewing Israel's response to Munich through the eyes of the men who were sent to avenge that tragedy adds a human dimension to a horrific episode that we usually think about only in political or military terms. By experiencing how the implacable resolve of these men to succeed in their mission slowly gave way to troubling doubts about what they were doing, I think we can learn something important about the tragic stand-off we find ourselves in today."
- December 1969: The film was in Completed status.
