Summer '24 Exciting Update:

We are in post production!

Michele Kuvin Kupfer shares, "Creating this documentary continues to be a thrill, and throughout filming over these last two years, our story takes some unexpected directions. Stay tuned!"

About the Film:​

          "Parting The Waters" is a story about history, sports, and the meaningful and universal personal stories that touch hearts and souls. 

           It is hard to believe that we just finished our first rough draft of the film.  If the first go around of editing is any indication,

           we have a special film on our hands. Michele’s story goes back and forth from past to present with amazing archival footage as

           well as documentation of the team’s reunion at the 2022 Maccabiah Games.  

                            This is a story about identity, adversity, and strength through sport: one woman's story. 


          Michele was a member of the 1980 Israeli Olympic Swim team and the 1981 Maccabiah Games, she underwent a personal

          and athletic coming of age. Now after 40 years, members of her team reassembled and competed in the 2022 Maccabiah Games. 

          Inspired by their reunion and collective life experiences, our documentary chronicles Michele's personal journey from

         young-to-masters swimmer, in the context of Jewish life in the US and Israel through the prism of the world of sport.

       Now more than ever: keep these stories alive, preserve our history, dream big, work hard towards a better future.
