This documentary is a personal story that captures the history of the iconic camera by telling the filmmaker’s personal story. Filmmaker Alyssa Bolsey stumbles on a treasure trove of vintage cameras, old film reels, fading photos, technical drawings and boxes of documents that belonged to her great-grandfather Jacques Bolsey. Among the many boxes, she spots an old movie camera with the word "Bolex" embossed on its side and a dangling tag with the year "1927." Entranced, she embarks on a journey that reveals how Jacques aimed to disrupt the early film industry with a motion picture camera for the masses.
