Join us for a photography exhibition and Film Screening of Tamar Tal's acclaimed documentary 'Life In Stills' to benefit Sternthal Book's new project Zalmania. For the past five years we have been working on digitizating Rudi Weisenstein's archive of portraits in order to create a coffee table book of faces photographed in his small photo studio in Tel-Aviv. The film follows the Miriam Weisenstein, Rudi's widow, and their grandson Ben. At the age of 96, Miriam 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 - 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 journey, comprising many humorous and touching moments. Join us for a cocktail, followed by a presentation of the film by Ian Sternthal, and an exhibition of black and white photographs. All proceeds will go towards the digitization effort. Life in Stills, 60 min, English subtitles, Documentary | Biography | Drama - May 2011
