Tales of Europe

Fully shot on 35mm, this entertaining documentary follows the spectacular re-invention of Polaroid and provides a light hearted and inspiring story about the analogue vs. digital world.

Humans are analogue. We're literally sick of the digital world engulfing us. People are yearning for real things and authenticity. Impossible is sensuous and inspiring film about the revenge of analog. And the eccentric, crazy Austrian scientist, who saved the world's last Polaroid factory—just when Steve Jobs introduced the first iPhone. An entertaining underdog story of a very modern Don Quixote, shot on 35mm. And a sumptuous invitation to fall in love with real things again.
