At the age of 96, Miriam Weissenstein 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 – a journey that requires a lot of love, courage, and compassion.

Life in Stills won the Grand Prix - Best Film in Festival

This is the third major prize of "Life in Stills".

Jury's statement:

A brilliant documentary film about a small photo gallery owner Miriam and her grandson who join forces to save the shop and its nearly one million negatives from developers who are building a shopping mall in its location. The film follows this heart-wrenching journey filled with humourous and touching moments. At its core, is this 96 year old character who is truly unique, full of spirit and provides the soul of the film. This intimate story not only tells the story of one family but reveals an important part of the history of Israel.

The Jury Consisted of:

Jessica Daniel / Canada • Jovanka Kovacevic Djuranovic / Montenegro • Robert Tomljenovic / Croatia • Ana Maria Rossi / Serbia • Ton Van Zantvoort / The Netherlands
