a Love Story,
Nearly 50 Years
in the Making
IT BEGAN in the early 1970's with a guy and his Super 8mm film camera. Through joy and tragedy, Larry captured his loving family. Time passed, technology evolved, more children were born, and there amassed a cabinet full of home movies---films and videos of holidays, school events, kids' birthdays, family vacations, you name it; all those funny and awkward moments captured for posterity!
It seemed a shame to me to keep those moments on a shelf. I'm Larry's son. "Larry" is on his birth certificate, but my mother calls him "Lar," or "Lawrence" sometimes...it sounds fancier, I suppose. Anyways, I digress: I came to love cameras because he did. They were always around and, like my father, I made use of them. They are a good tool (and release) in times of adversity.
THIS FILM'S JOURNEY started in 2003. My younger sister became seriously ill from the effects of a genetic disease called Cystic Fibrosis. So, I grabbed a camera. I wanted to learn something about what she and her three CF siblings had to deal with. I hope you will too. The resulting film is our family's story. - Jason
