Israeli documentary Precious Life marks an early pre-Toronto Film Festival sale as HBO acquires U.S. rights. Directed by Israeli broadcaster Shlomi Eldar and produced by Ehud Bleiberg and Yoav Ze’evi, Precious Life tells the story of a four-month-old Palestinian boy from Gaza who lacks an immune system and requires a bone marrow transplant. This can only be done in an Israeli hospital.  As his doctor pleads for help, Israeli journalist Shlomi Eldar decides to document this complex drama about Israeli and Palestinian doctors’ attempt to save the kid's life.

“We can’t imagine any other company releasing Precious Life," said producer Ehud Bleiberg of Bleiberg Entertainment (Adam Resurrected, The Assassin Next Door, The Band’s Visit).

Precious Life will screen in Toronto's Real-to-Reel program, followed by its 2011 presentation on HBO.
