About the Project

In the early 1920’s inventor Jacques Bolsey aimed to disrupt the film industry with a motion picture camera for the masses: the iconic Bolex. But little was known about the immigrant inventor until his great-granddaughter uncovers his forgotten family archive and embarks on a journey to reveal his epic story.
