On July 28th, SFGFF is co-presenting with the Jewish Film Festival in screening 'Picture of His Life'. In this film, world-famous underwater still photographer Amos Nachoum is determined to get the "picture of his life," a polar bear up close and personal, a task considered not only dangerous, but maybe impossible. While painting a portrait of Nachoum's inner life, filmmakers Dani Menkin and Yonatan Nir follow his quest to the freezing Arctic waters where we see the infinite patience and preparation that goes into the making of his work and come to understand why Nachoum feels that getting close to nature brings peace and joy.
Guest speakers include directors Dani Menkin and Yonatan Nir, producer Nancy Spielberg and subject Amos Nachum.
