Side by Side

dir. Christopher Kenneally, USA 2012, 99 min.



Side by Side is a new documentary produced by Keanu Reeves himself. The film tackles the subject of an extraordinary revolution - a departure from a strip of celluloid film to digital technology. The document consists of a number of interviews with directors, cinematographers, film school students, producers, technicians, editors and owners of movie theater chains. Industry insiders talk here about all aspects of production - cinematography, editing, visual effects, color correction, distribution and archiving. We live in an era where digital and photochemical technologies coexist on the market, and "Side by Side" is an attempt to draw up a specific balance sheet of the profits and losses, and to answer the question: "What will tomorrow bring?"
