A documentary film about the present and future of film and the cinema in the digital era. “When I finished my last movie on 35mm in 2011 there was a gloomy vibe in the lab. They were complaining about the bad order situation and the decline of moviegoers. Uncertainty everywhere. Suddenly many colleagues were anxious about their future. Then came 2012. First Kodak went bancrupt. Then Chris Marker died. Fuji stopped the production of raw stock. Suddenly our film world seemed differently. A few years before a digitally presented film was exclusive. I disliked it. Scratches, dust and the noise of the silver belong to my formative movie experiences. But nostalgia is not an option. In the meantime the lab has closed. We carry on. (Michael Palm)
