70-some Years

Henry Bendinelli has been skiing for 70-some years.

In loving memory of my friend Henry, 1924-2015.

Two years ago Henry emailed Vimeo support asking for help with deleting videos. I received his email and tried as best I could to help him navigate his video settings. In the process of assisting him, I learned from his Vimeo account and the many videos he uploaded that he was an 89 year-old skiing, dancing, video-shooting Portland native. I had found a kindred spirit. By the end of our lengthy correspondence (he never did find the delete button, I ended up just deleting the videos for him) he had invited me to go skiing with him when I was home for the holidays. I accepted his invitation and, naturally, made a film about him as well.
