German and Hebrew with English subtitles
Director: Tamar Tal

Winner: Best Documentary, Doc Aviv Film Festival, 2011

At the age of ninety-six, Miriam Weissenstein never imagined that she would be facing a new chapter in her life. But when "the Photo House"—her late husband's life's work—was destined for demolition, she knew she needed help. Miriam and her grandson, Ben, join forces to save the shop and its nearly one million negatives that document Israel's defining moments. Despite the generation gap, their love, courage, and determination support them through a heart-wrenching journey, filled with humorous and touching moments.
