Follow the dramatic journey of filmmaker Alyssa Bolsey as she discovers the story of her great-grandfather Jacques Bolsey, the visionary inventor of the Bolex movie camera. This is the camera that led to the careers and development of so many legendary filmmakers including Steven Spielberg, as you’ll see in his latest autobiographical film, The Fabelmans.

Pro8mm scanned and transferred some of Spielberg’s original footage from his first films shot with his Bolex, some of which you will see in Beyond the Bolex.

Join us for this limited-time 5-day world premiere virtual screening of this wonderful film, and by doing so you will be helping Alyssa bring her film to a wider audience.
