Barefoot Cinema

Television (Full Length) – 2008

Barefoot Cinema looks at the "art and life" of Kiwi Alun Bollinger, whom Peter Jackson calls "the finest lighting cameraman that the country has ever produced". Goodbye Pork Pie, Vigil, Heavenly Creatures ... the path of the man known as 'AlBol' is like a screen industry growth chart. But the 73-minute documentary is as much an affectionate account of the values and family of a "greenie good keen man", shaped around his four decades-long relationship with wife Helen. En route, 'AlBol' is seen nailing down iron in the rain at his West Coast home, and he and Peter Jackson reflect on their collaborations. 

He’s calm, he’s relaxed, he doesn’t wear shoes...what more could you want?
