Instant Dreams

Willem Baptist, Netherland, 2017, 91'

When Polaroid announced the end of instant film in 2008, the last still working factory was bought by a small group of enthusiasts. Among them is the retired scientist Stephen Herchen who previously collaborated with the inventor of Polaroid and is still trying to unravel the secret of the lost chemical formula. On this overwhelming cinematic journey, Baptist introduces us to a number of quirky individuals who are trying to keep the instant dream alive.
