Reviews

  • Box for Life is an inspiring story of resilience and optimism. Noah Klieger’s legacy teaches us all how to live our best lives, meeting each challenge as they come with strength, courage and hope. Uri Borreda, film writer, director and producer is a masterful story teller, enabling viewers to feel an endearing personal connection to Noah Klieger, without ever having physically met him. Talking with Uri after the viewing of the film enriched our viewers experience of the film, bringing Noah to life with even more vibrancy. The conversation with Uri is what makes viewing this film a Festival experience and not just watching a movie.
