After the critically acclaimed Dolphin Boy, Yonatan Nir and Dani Menkin return with another touching documentary about the delicate relationship between man and nature. Picture of His Life tells the story of Amos Nachoum, one of the greatest underwater photographers of all times.

Fascinated by the most fearsome creatures on Earth, he has developed a unique approach, that puts him face to face with his subjects, without any protection. He swam with crocodiles and killer whales, with anacondas and with great white sharks but one major predator has always eluded him, the Polar bear.

He tried before and barely escaped, but now, after four decades in the wilderness, Amos is determined to give it one last shot. The danger is real, perhaps more real than ever, but this is his last chance to get the picture of a lifetime.

As the journey unfolds, Amos contemplates the series of unspoken events that drove him here, to the end of the world. It has been a long and painful journey, after serving in an Elite Commando unit and witnessing the horrors of war, but where others find fear, Amos finds redemption.

Co-Directors Yonatan Nir and Dani Menkin join Executive Producer Nancy Spielberg and Emmy Award winning Cinematographer Adam Ravetch, to bring us a powerful film that was 10 years in the making.
