Beyond the Bolex

Film
Beyond the Bolex

Director: Alyssa Bolsey
Year: 2018
Country: America
Subtitles: Turkish
Duration: 94’
Introduced by: Alyssa Bolsey

In the 1920s immigrant inventor Jacques Bolsey aimed to disrupt the early film industry with a motion picture camera for the masses: the iconic Bolex. Over 90 years later, filmmaker Alyssa Bolsey pieces together the fragments of a forgotten family archive to reveal the epic story of her great-grandfather in Beyond the Bolex. In this film, Alyssa Bolsey takes us to a journey, during which she Interviews not only her family members but also renowned filmmakers, such as Wim Wenders, Jonas Mekas, Bruce Brown and Barbara Hammer – all of whom were influenced by this invention. Travelling to Switzerland, Alyssa Bolsey delves into Jacques Bolsey’s personal diary, film reels and collected images in order to understand the man and his impact on generations of filmmakers.

Tickets are available at Biletix and on the day of the event, at the Akbank Sanat ticket counter.  

Talks and masterclasses are free.
