The Uncle Jack

The Uncle Jack

The Uncle Jack is a cinematic self portrait by film-maker John T. Davis, dedicated to the cinema architect John McBride Neill, his uncle Jack, who unwittingly gave him his means of expression: cinema. Through a mixture of archive, reminiscence and dramatic reconstruction, the film explores the power of unshakeable obsession and the circular motion of generations. "Jack was like a second father to me, and when he died, he left everything to me, his house, his inventions, his musical instruments, but most importantly, the 8mm camera that was to change my life forever." (John T. Davis)
