The Collectors

More than half of us collect something. In this film we meet some of the UK's most eccentric collectors - from adjustable spanners to Commodore cassettes; from Bakelite to china dogs and from valuable old Irish photographs to bric-a-brac which takes over the collector's house and life. From car boot sales, to antique fairs to the internet, to pursue their search for additions to their collection and personal identity.  The film had its premiere at the Open City London Documentary Festival in June 2011.
