Barefoot Cinema looks at "the art and life" of Alun Bollinger, whom Peter Jackson calls "the finest lighting cameraman that the country has ever produced." Pork Pie, Vigil, Heavenly Creatures ... the path of the man known as 'AlBol' could be an industry growth chart. But the film 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. In this excerpt AlBol nails down iron in the rain at his West Coast home, and Jackson and he reflect on their collaborations. 

Of course, we’ve never heard much about him, which made this documentary a delight and a useful, understated slice of cultural history
