ReelAbilities Film Festival Preview Screening

Join us for a special preview event to kick off the 2020 festival! Don’t miss an intimate, immersive screening of the film Picture of His Life in the Planetarium to celebrate the upcoming lineup.

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. Directed by Dani Menkin and Yonatan Nir.

Reception with light bites to follow.
