Event

Precious Life - Maine Jewish Film Festival
Director: Shlomi Eldar
Country: Israel | 2010 | Documentary
Duration: 90 min.
Language: Hebrew, Arabic with English subtitles

PRECIOUS LIFE tells the story of Mohammad Abu Mustafa, a four-month-old Palestinian boy from Gaza. Mohammad was born without an immune system and requires a bone marrow transplant, a treatment only available in an Israeli hospital. In the midst of the Gaza War, Raida, his mother, Shlomi Eldar, the Gaza reporter for Israel Channel 10 news, and an Israeli pediatrician try to get treatment for Mohammad. Eldar demonstrates the profound dilemma and impossibility faced by those in the Gaza Strip seeking medical treatment and those in Israel who want to provide it. An extraordinary and at times tenuous relationship is forged between mother, doctor, and director as they navigate the devastating and dangerous terrain between Gaza and Israel.

Awards:
Israel Film Academy Ophir Awards, Best Documentary, 2010
Telluride Film Festival, Best Documentary, 2010

This screening will be followed by a medical ethics panel.
