AN IMPOSSIBLE PROJECT
Feature Documentary · 93 mins · English (OV) · 2020
„How often do you look at your phone? Can you even stop? Are you, too, suffering from digital overload? Director Jens Meurer's film 'An Impossible Project' sets out to offer us alternative distractions, and to learn to trust our senses once more.
In 2008, as we were all salivating over our first iPhone, an eccentric former biologist, Dr. Florian Kaps - better known as 'Doc' - had a strange calling. He decided to save the last Polaroid factory in the world, in Enschede in the Netherlands. At first the venture failed miserably. But the Doc never gives up and what follows is a heart-warming and inspiring trip into the new power of analogue - taking him to one of the unlikeliest places of all: Silicon Valley.
Shot on analogue 35mm film (of course), the original soundtrack was recorded direct-to-disc by a 40-piece jazz orchestra with the sensational Haley Reinhart on vocals and the titles hand-printed by Erik Spiekermann. 'An Impossible Project' is rich in curiosity and good humour, celebrating the potent and lasting connections between humans and technology, and serving as a timely reminder that not only are we all unique, but humans are the most analogue project of all. «

As a big fan and friend of all things analog I was happy to edit this beautiful analog documentary together with Michael Nollet and Andrew Bird.
