About this Event

In celebration of Earth Day 2021, the Consulate General of Israel in Toronto & Western Canada is pleased to announce the participation of internationally-acclaimed filmmaker Yonatan Nir in an exclusive moderated discussion on his documentary film Picture of His Life.

Picture of His Life follows the journey of world-renowned underwater wildlife photographer Amos Nachoum in his pursuit to photograph a polar bear up close, while swimming with it; a feat incredibly dangerous and nearly impossible, Nachoum is the only underwater wildlife photographer in the world to attempt (and succeed at) this shoot – with the help a few local Inuits. The film also reminds viewers of the changes and disruptions these polar bears experience in their ecosystems due to climate change, and stresses the importance of preserving it.

This is the Consulate’s fourth and final Yonatan Nir film screening and webinar program. Previously, the Consulate screened My Hero BrotherThe Essential Link: The Story of Wilfrid Israel, and Dolphin Boy. These titles are available by rental on Vimeo.

Picture of His Life will be freely accessible to view from April 22-29 through this link: https://youtu.be/TCLUq_4BoFU

The event will take place in a Zoom webinar format on Thursday, April 29 from 7:30-9:00pm EST. Registration for the event through Eventbrite. Zoom link will be sent out to all those who RSVP the day before the event.
