Super 8 stories

Super 8 films shot by my mother and father between 1968 and 1974. I am combining each film with a short piece of prose, which may turn out to be memoir, or a wander away from the moving images, depending. You can see all the films on my YouTube channel.

  1. This is so cool! My parents still have some black-and-white Super 8 reels that I remember watching in slack-jawed fascination as a kid. There’s a certain romanticism behind the graininess and silence, isn’t there?
