Picture of His Life: a Consulate General of Israel Earth Day event

April 22-29, 2021 documentary screening,  Thursday, April 29, 2021, 4:30 pm (PT) Webinar—From April 22-29, in celebration of Earth Day 2021, the Consulate General of Israel in Toronto & Western Canada will be screening an hour-long documentary, by internationally-acclaimed filmmaker Yonatan Nir, titled Picture of His Life. This film follows the journey of world-renowned underwater wildlife photographer Amos Nachoum in his effort to photograph a polar bear up close while swimming with it – an incredibly dangerous and nearly impossible feat – all the while painting a nuanced picture of Nachoum’s complex life and relationships. Nachoum is the only underwater wildlife photographer in the world to attempt (and succeed at) this shoot, with the help of a local Inuit couple.  The film also reminds viewers of the disruptions these polar bears experience in their ecosystems due to environmental changes, and stresses the importance of preserving it.
 
Picture of His Life will be the fourth and final Yonatan Nir film the Consulate screens for its viewers in this series, and each weeklong screening period ends with an exclusive moderated Q&A webinar with Yonatan Nir.
 
Beginning April 22, you will be able to screen the film through this link: https://youtu.be/TCLUq_4Bo. On April 29, at 4:30 PT, the Consulate will be hosting an exclusive moderated Q&A webinar with Yonatan Nir. Register to receive the Zoom link here: https://bit.ly/3ghPMJY
