About the Book
Jaap Pieters, based in Amsterdam, and John Porter, from Toronto, are two of the most prolific Super 8mm filmmakers alive. Pieters has been making Super 8mm films since the early 1980s and Porter's work goes as far back as 1968. Both are considered to be important, although perhaps eccentric, members of their local film scene. 8 Affinities brings them together in a long candid conversation about their filmmaking, shared interests and divergent practices.
