- Director:Jens Meurer
This is 90 minutes of digital detox. An Impossible Project is an entertaining and sensuous film about the renaissance of analogue in our digital lives. We follow an eccentric scientist as he embarks on a feisty mission to save the world's last Polaroid factory. An inspiring underdog story of a 21st Century Don Quixote. And a sumptuous invitation to fall in love with real things again. Fully shot on 35mm.
