Film Screening: PRECIOUS LIFE
Born without an immune system, four-month-old Palestinian boy Mohammad Abu Mustaffa will die without a bone marrow transplant – a procedure that can only be done in an Israeli hospital. Set against the backdrop of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, PRECIOUS LIFE is a powerful appeal for peace, exploring the challenges and prejudices that must be overcome when officials from conflicting nations attempt to work together for a noble cause.
Directed by Israeli journalist Shlomi Eldar, the timely documentary PRECIOUS LIFE received the 2010 Ophir Award (the Israeli Academy Award®) for Best Documentary. The film has also been shortlisted for an Oscar. Click here to view the trailer.
