A man spends a fortune saving the last Polaroid film factory – meet Florian ‘Doc’ Kaps, champion of analogue technology.  Shot on 35mm film, An Impossible Project is a sensuous and inspiring documentary about the revenge of analogue, and a salute to the eccentric Austrian scientist, a very modern Don Quixote, who saved the world’s last Polaroid factory and has since dedicated his life to the revival of analogue processes and things. At a time when our engagement with physical experience, especially the cinema, has been denied by circumstances, An Impossible Project is a sumptuous invitation to fall in love with real things again.   Running time: 1 hour 39 minutes.  German with subtitles. 

An Impossible Project is available 1st March to 23rd May.  Use Promo code BFSYSS2 to get your discount.

BFS Opinion: Obviously shot on 35 mm film (perish the use of digital photography) the film charts the doctors struggle to achieve ‘the impossible project’.

“I’m not a Luddite. I’m not saying we should switch back to analogue entirely. I’m just saying we should not let real-life analogue experiences die”. – director Jens Meurer, speaking at the International Film Festival of India.
