An Impossible Project
How often do you look at your phone? Can you even stop? Are you, too, suffering from digital overload? Director Jens Meurer’s latest film ‘An Impossible Project’ sets out to offer us alternative distractions, and to learn to trust our senses once more.
Six years in the making, this heart-warming, Tati-esque celebration of the analogue heroes who dare to swim against the digital tide will celebrate its world premiere at the prestigious International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR) on Sunday, 26 January as part of the “Deep Focus” strand.
Shot on glorious Kodak 35mm - when everyone had assumed film was 'over'- and with a full orchestral film score recorded live direct-to-disc, this sumptuous feature documentary mirrors the unlikely and often tragi-comic underdoc story of its hero, the eccentric Viennese biologist who set-out to save the world's last Polaroid factory.
