IAC Cinematec was founded by Dr. Etti Inbal to introduce the US public to Israeli films, film makers, and daily life in Israel in an effort to create an Israeli-American community of film fans, who can share in the experience and enjoy dialogues about the films. Films are screened with English subtitles and attended by a guest director, actor, or a film professional, who will discuss issues related to the film in English.
Picture Of His Life
World-renowned wildlife photographer Amos Nachoum has one final photographic dream remaining - to photograph a Polar Bear underwater while swimming alongside it.

As the journey unfolds, so does an intimate and painful story of dedication, sacrifice, and personal redemption.
