Keanu Reeves’ documentary ‘Side by Side’: It’s time to accept that digital is the future


154690910 300x203 Keanu Reeves documentary Side by Side: Its time to accept that digital is the future

❝This week sees the release of the Keanu Reeves-fronted documentary Side By Side. The film features interviews with several respected filmmakers, each of whom discuss their personal attitude towards the decline in traditional 35mm photochemical cinematography, and the revolution in digital acquisition, distribution and exhibition. The documentary is impeccable both in its detail and balance, yet seems to ultimately focus on a debate that is already resolved.

Photochemical film stock was the primary format used to make movies for the 120 years after its invention, and has a special place in the hearts of many as a nostalgic medium that underlines the numinous quality of cinema.❞
