FILM IS A FILM IS A FILM

Directed by Eva von Schweinitz
SHORT DOCUMENTARY 16 Minutes World Premiere
FILM GUIDE FILM IS A FILM IS A FILM
Digital projection takes over the movie screens worldwide. As celluloid slowly disappears from her workplace, the director, a movie projectionist herself, starts bleaching, painting, and scratching film to find answers about what makes it special. A personal look into a changing profession and a visceral portrait of a vanishing material.
