Life in Stills
Sunday, December 11 at 8:00 p.m.
Monday, January 9, 2017 at 1:00 p.m.

Life in StillsAt the age of 96, Miriam Weissenstein never imagined that she would be facing a new chapter in her life.

But when “The Photo House”—her late husband Rudi’s photo studio and life’s work—was destined for demolition, even this opinionated and uncompromising woman knew she needed help

Under the cloud of a family tragedy, a special relationship is forged between Miriam and her grandson, Ben, as they join forces to save the shop and its nearly one million negatives that document Israel’s defining moments.

Despite the generation gap and many conflicts, Ben and Miriam embark on a heart-wrenching quest that requires love, courage, and compassion. Life in Stills, winner of numerous awards, is an exquisite visual journey and a unique chronicle of one Israeli family whose resilience parallels the resilience of the country itself.
