Tune In (2006) - Esther Johnson
A portrait of the fascinating world of amateur radio operators, better known as HAMS. Dealing with the politics of space and social communication, Tune In blends documentary and abstract audio to reflect on the use of DIY radio equipment in an ever-changing modern world. 'The Space-age hobby where the world is your friend.'
"An unusual delight...beautifully composed study of a dying breed of enthusiasts and hobbyists...The more I think about this film the more I love it and it well deserved to be fifteen minutes long which few films do." – Ben BlaineShooting People Film Programmer 2006
"An astute and affectionate portrait on the unseen community of HAM radio enthusiasts." – London Film Festival 2006
