Synopsis:
A prolific yet unknown filmmaker, Harry Birrell created films throughout the 20th century. Harry was given his first cine-camera as a boy in 1928 and spent his life recording incidents great and small - his entertaining and errant adventures are recorded in over 400 films, diaries and photographs that were recently brought to light by his Granddaughter Carina. His home movies of family events and fine romances now ache with fond nostalgia but Harry's life was also filled with far away adventures and the film captures a vivid sense of wartime years spent in Bombay, the jungles of Burma and the mountains of Nepal.
From commanding a battalion of Ghurkas in the Indian army at the start of the WWII, to dangerous sorties deep behind enemy lines in Burma at it's end; from the Ballroom dances of his youth in the 1930's to teaching his children to twist in the 1960's - Harry filmed his whole life with the intimacy of home movies but on the scale of Lawrence of Arabia.
