DVD: Gandolfi-Family Business / pre-order special offer until 24 March, available from April

When, in 1982, Fred Gandolfi decided to close the family camera-making business, photographer Ken Griffiths thought the Peckham workshop, and the Gandolf’s unique way of of life should be recorded for posterity. Joined by his brother David as cinematographer and supported by a passionate team of film-makers and photographers, they crafted a nostalgic feature film of startling beauty, recording the passing of the old Victorian industry.

At last, after a new 2K high resolution scan & sound-track enhancement, the film will be available on DVD for general distribution. Produced in the DigiPak format, the DVD package is an elegantly designed collectible production, including a 36 page booklet featuring many of Ken’s pictures, the making of the film, and Fred Gandolfi’s own description of their camera making techniques.

DVD Price: £ 15.95 Inc VAT + P&P £ 2.50 Inc VAT for UK Highlands & Islands.
