IGL News | Posted Jan 28, 2013

Born without an immune system, four-month-old Palestinian Mohammad Abu Mustafa will die without a bone marrow transplant, a procedure that can only be done in an Israeli hospital. A desperate plea from his doctor to save Mohammad’s life leads Israeli journalist Shlomi Eldar to document this complex and emotional story. A powerful appeal for peace, Precious Life explores the challenges and prejudices that must be overcome when officials from conflicting nations attempt to put aside their differences for a noble cause.

The film will be ntroduced by Dr. Izzeldin Abuelaish, known as "the Gazan Doctor" and the founder of Daughters for Life.  He is an Institute Mayer Award Recipient.
