Video is showing for me - camera looks like a Spotmatic or K1000. Looks like an unusual movie, too!

The movie is based upon a true story and in real life he started with a Pentax camera.

I watched a documentary a few years back on the same subject and it also had a Spotmatic which he used in real live.

Are you running the Privacy Badger browser add-in? That might break the video in the top post. Or maybe it's another browser issue.


Right click the video, pick "Copy video URL", then open a new browser tab and paste the copied URL.
