evered as one of the greatest photographers of all time, Amos Nachoum has always been fascinated, but never deterred, by the most fearsome creatures on earth, including great white sharks and the polar bear. Picture of his Life is the film that captures his unrelenting journey to redemption.

The 27th Annual Virginia Festival of Jewish Film’s BIG Saturday Night Celebration of Jewish film and Champagne reception, in memory of Patricia Ashkennazi, features Picture of his Life. The event takes place at the Sandler Center for the Performing Arts at 8 pm on Saturday, February 22.

A sampling of Amos Nachoum’s large body of daring work is now on exhibit in the Leon Family Gallery at the Simon Family JCC.
