An Impossible Project: Film Trailer

Simon Skinner - 2 years ago

It’s fair to say that we’re all quite excited to see the upcoming documentary, An Impossible Project, which tells the story about the ‘impossible’ attempt to save Polaroid and rebuild the final, remaining Polaroid factory.

You likely know the story already. It first started in 2008 when Kodak announced that they’d be ending all Polaroid film production. In a world dominated by zeroes and ones, eccentric scientist Florian ‘Doc’ Kaps endeavours to protect the future of analogue photographic production and chemistry within, to inspire people to connect with ‘real’ things.

His crusade begins with an impossible mission: to save the last Polaroid factory. Shot on Kodak 35mm and with a stylistic nod to Jacques Tati, ‘An Impossible Project’ is a warm, witty and inspiring celebration of a counter-revolution: the comeback of ‘analogue’. It’s optimistic; yes, but here at PhotoBite, we just love tangible art and creating memories that you can view without the barrier of a screen interfering with the experience.

We’e all in and can’t wait to see the whole thing. Watch the trailer below! The film will be showing in the US from June 1st 2021 – we’ll update here when and where it’s screening in the UK!
