Life in Stills


Life in Stills 
Directed by Tamar Tai 
60 mins. / Germany, Israel / Hebrew with English subtitles / 2011

Israel’s most famous photographer, Rudi Wasserstein, gave the nation some of its most iconic images. But his momentous photo studio, still run by his 96 year-old widow, Miriam, is in trouble. In this delightful, intimate portrait, the camera follows the relationship between the stubborn, feisty Miriam and her gentle grandson as they struggle with property developers to save the shop and its archive – home to over a million of Rudi’s priceless negatives – for the nation’s heritage. A touching, funny portrait of two generations who don’t always see eye to eye but find strength in each other.
