JIFF-Picture of his Life

This movie is from our archive and is not currently screening.

Amos Nachoum is one of the greatest underwater photographers of all times. Fascinated by the most fearsome creatures on Earth, he has developed a unique approach that puts him face to face with his subjects. He has swum with crocodiles, killer whales, anacondas and great white sharks but one major predator has always eluded him: the polar bear. Now, after four decades in the wilderness, Nachoum is determined to give it one last shot. As his journey unfolds, Nachoum contemplates the series of events - from fraught family relationships to the horrors of war - that drove him here to the end of the world. It has been a long and painful journey, but where others find fear, Amos Nachoum has found redemption.
Executive Produced by Nancy Spielberg.
