Mini Bio (1)
From his early days in life, starting at the age of 8, Boris Acosta had his first experience as a movie maker wearing as many hats as any filmmaker can wear. He found a large magnifying glass, about 8 inches in diameter. He played with it in the sun burning papers and grass with it. Then, he thought that there had to be a better purpose for such a big magnifying glass. So, he built a wooden box, made a whole in front of it to fit the magnifying glass, and, with the help of his grandfather, put a light in the back of the box. He bought two issues of the same comic magazine, which he cut into strips and glued them together by their edges to make a big roll out of them. He put the roll of comic strips in between the light and the magnifying glass and projected it on the wall. One could say that this was the first home projector ever, but he never thought of it that way. However, this was certainly Acosta's first film. Later he was invited to act in a college film, and after graduating he produced several educational films. One clue at a time, would later find himself working in the film industry as a producer and director of the second best Christian story ever told, The Divine Comedy - Dante's Inferno, Purgatory and Paradise.
