Kinneret Lives is documentary which asks the question
“What happens to a beautiful girl whose world burns down one night and she wakes up 5 months later to a harsh reality?
The HOUR with George Stroumboulopolous covered the documentary after it appeared in the Toronto Jewish Film Festival in May
Bombings are part of life in Israel. Suicide bombers, rocket attacks — the threat is always there. We’ve got a woman who knows that first hand.
Kinneret Haya Boosany. It was 2001, and in one instant, her life was changed forever. A suicide bomber walked into her cafe.
After that bombing, Kinneret was pronounced clinically dead. She was revived and put into a coma for 5 months. 70 per cent of her body was burned, she lost sight in one eye, she was deaf in one ear, and missing half a lung.
The story of her recovery is told in a documentary called ‘Kinneret Lives.’
In the film, she makes video diaries about what she went through. They’re raw, sometimes hopeful and painful.
