A documentary that explores why and how we engage with film as a physical object and experience – why we watch it, why we create with it, why we teach with it, why we preserve it. Through interviews with people who view and handle film every day – projectionists, archivists, lab technicians, techs, programmers and academics – we reveal why they continue to choose film.
This project is a wide-ranging testimony to the relevance of the medium to everyone from asset managers to scientists to the regular moviegoer. Our aim is to create a powerful message about Film and its purpose as art, technology and business.
Once complete, WHY WE FILM will be available on 16mm film for distribution and exhibition.
