Louisville Jewish Film Festival – Picture of His Life

Picture of His Life
World-famous Israeli underwater wild-life photographer, Amos Nachoum is determined to get the picture of an Arctic polar bear. He swam with crocodiles, killer whales, anacondas and great white sharks, but always dreamed of swimming underwater with a polar bear. Nachoum had tried it before and barely escaped. As the journey unfolds for the 65-year-old photographer, so does the story of his past; his difficult childhood, his service in an elite unit during the 1973 Yom Kippur War and other experiences that led to this quest.
Film ticket includes museum admission.
