Umit & Son

    In a film industry – and increasingly a world – where digital is everything, Umit and Son is keeping it real. You won’t find anything in the Hackney shop newer than VHS and older formats include countless 8mm and 16mm feature length movies and shorts. It takes a good minute to work out what Umit and Son is. Part newsagent (cans of soda and candy bars supplement day-to-day income), part rental store, and part museum. Umit himself owns one of Europe’s largest collections of Super 8. Clients are mostly industry insiders on the look out for rare cameras and projectors but anybody with even the most fleeting interest in ‘real film’ will be enamored with the store. With over twenty years history in Clapton and even longer in the film industry itself, it’s fair to say that Umit has some stories to tell. Like the one about his pride and joy, a Super 8 copy of Bruce Lee’s Enter the Dragon – one of only twenty in the world. How he got hold of it and what it’s worth? You’ll have to pay Umit and Son a visit to find out.Show lessRead more
