Synopsis

While the first iPhone was being launched in 2008, former biologist Dr Florian Kaps was heroically battling the odds to save the world’s last remaining Polaroid factory, and so keep analogue film alive in a world increasingly taken over by the digital image.

For this ode to analogue, the filmmakers went the extra mile, shooting only on 35mm film and recording the soundtrack direct to vinyl from a live performance by a 40-piece jazz orchestra. Rich in curiosity and humour, this beautiful documentary uses one man’s passion to celebrate the potent and lasting connections between humans and technology, and the importance of preserving the tangible.

"An engaging and often humorous film about a well-explored topic with a fascinating protagonist" - Cineuropa
