Virtual Cinematheque Series – The Tropic Cinema’s Virtual Cinematheque Series presents “Picture of His Life.” Amos Nachoum is one of the greatest underwater photographers of all time. Fascinated by the most fearsome creatures on Earth, he has developed a unique approach that puts him face to face with his subjects, 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, Nachoum has found redemption. Buy tickets at www.tropiccinema.com/event/virtual-cinemathequeseries picture-of-his-life/.
