Cinematic Experience: Martin Hill: Camera Man

McKnight Hall

The UNC Charlotte College of Arts + Architecture, the UNC Charlotte Film Studies program, and the Charlotte Film Society present a Fall 2013 film series, which kicks off on September 14. This four-film series, titled THE CINEMATIC EXPERIENCE, will introduce a collection of four documentary films that explore the nature of how we consume, experience, and respond to cinema. 

In the small town of Midland, NC, Martin Hill has been collecting the artistic tools of master filmmakers. His story is one of passion and preservation, obsession and compulsion, expectation and disappointment. This film takes a six-year journey with Martin through his dilapidated bowling alley, where he buys, houses, and hoards an array of historic film equipment, used to create some of Hollywood's most iconic movies, including "Star Wars," "Gone with the Wind," "Lawrence of Arabia" and "The Ten Commandments."
