L'Aventure Bolex
Beyond the Bolex
  • Suisse, États-Unis | 2018 | 52 minutes & 91 minutes
  • Un film de Alyssa Bolsey

À travers le regard contemporain de l ’arrière-petite-fille de Jacques Bolsey, L’aventure Bolex explore le passé d’une invention à l’origine des premiers films indépendants jusqu’aux évolutions actuelles.

A young director digs into the family archive and discovers a legacy of a wider scope, when she realizes that her great-grandfather was the one who invented the Bolex camera: a light and versatile machine that changed the way in which films were made. A fascinating journey in the genealogy of avant-garde and mainstream cinema alike, through its technologies and, mostly, through its people who insisted that democratizing the medium is a genuinely revolutionary act.
