To photograph some of the most fearsome creatures on Earth, Amos Nachoum has gone face to face with anacondas, giant leopard seals, great white sharks, orcas, and crocodiles. But at age 65, Nachoum, one of the greatest underwater photographers of all time, is about to face his ultimate challenge: photographing a polar bear, up close, without any protection. As he prepares for his biggest mission in the Canadian Arctic, Nachoum faces past traumas in an intimate story of dedication, sacrifice, and personal redemption.


Join Boston Jewish Film on June 14 at 5pm for a conversation with co-director Yonatan Nir and Photographer Amos Nachoum, film subject.
