    • Synopsis
    • Bumpa is an amateur filmmaker who has been committed to his passion from the early days of splicing 8mm film all the way through to digital editing on his computer. He has captured on camera his whole life from his teen years onwards and all that has gone on around him. Family, friends and work are all documented alongside his varied interests in a vast catalogue that stretches for thousands of hours. Working alongside his grandson, who developed a belated interest in the hobby that Bumpa shared with few people outside of his cineclub group of fellow octogenarian enthusiasts, the two take a look back at the significance of cine throughout his life.
