The story of the first personal computer sold in Canada, and the man who sold it.
My father was born in a refugee camp in Venice, Italy at the end of the world war II, and came to Montreal by boat when he was three years old. Thirty years later, he opened a store called Computerland and sold the first personal computer in Canada. This short film is a piece of his story, and history.
My team is the greatest team in the world: the Hodgee Films family. Together we have had a doc premiere at the Tribeca Film Fest, and are currently doing a web series for Morgan Spurlock. For our demo reel check out hodgeefilms.com.
In 1979, my father opened a store called Computerland after reading in a magazine that "computers are the future".
My dad was born in Venice, Italy, as a refugee, during world war II. His family came to Canada by boat after fighting in the resistance in the forests of Belarus.
My dad turns 70 this year, and he still plays hockey three times a week.
