Synopsis

From the moment he first experienced the thrill of cinema as a young child in 1950s New Jersey, Sammy Fabelman was hooked. Encouraged by his vibrant and creative mother, he learns to use his father’s 8mm camera and make his own movies, roping in family members and friends to recreate the magical action of the silver screen. As he grows up, his shoots become ever-more ambitious and adventurous, but mounting conflict between his parents and the anti-Semitic abuse he receives at school threaten to overwhelm his passion for filmmaking. Closely inspired by Steven Spielberg’s own childhood, this is a love letter from one of the world’s most celebrated directors to the joys of cinema, a film driven by a power to inspire a whole new generation of aspiring cineastes.
