The Kodachrome Elegies

Written and Directed by Jay Rosenblatt
11 minutes • Pro Res HQ • color/B&W 2017

World Premiere at Visions du Reel, Switzerland

Kodachrome was a filmstock noted for its rich tones and vibrant colors. "The Kodachrome Elegies" is a short experimental documentary that evokes the bygone era of Kodachrome’s pinnacle. While it is a paean to this lost filmstock, the film suggests the end of an era and the loss of innocence.
