About the film

At 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 life’s work, is destined for demolition, this opinionated and uncompromising woman knows she needs to find help. Miriam and her grandson Ben join forces to save the shop and its nearly one million negatives that document Israel’s defining moments. Life in Stills shows Ben and Miriam embarking upon a heart-wrenching journey filled with humorous and touching moments—a journey that requires love, courage, and compassion.

A Q&A with Ben Peter, grandson of the owner of the photo shop, will follow both showing of the film.
