Event description

Description

Director: Willem Baptist
Year: 2017
Duration: 93mins
Country: Netherlands

Official Selection: IDFA Festival, Sofia International Film Festival, Slamdance Film Festival

In this overwhelming cinematic journey, Baptist introduces us to a number of quirky individuals who are connected to Polaroid in a special way: the German artist Stefanie Schneider, who does a photo shoot in the California desert with her last existing original Polaroid stock; New York Magazine editor Christopher Bonanos, who wrote a book about Polaroid’s history and tries to capture the relationship with his son with his instant camera; and a Japanese girl who first discovered the magic of Polaroid in Tokyo.

Everyone tries to keep the instant dream alive in his or her way. Slowly we also begin to feel the magic of Polaroids. Like the instant photos, we are chemical creatures full of unpredictable reactions.

"Instant Dreams is a journal of the rebirth of the instant photograph, of what it conveys and preserves. And most of all, it captures and highlights the human stories behind each spellbinding image." – Kathy Rong Zhou
