Instant Dreams is a feature documentary by Willem Baptist about the fascination and love for Polaroids. 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.
Instant Dreams will be presented as a tie-in to our May art exhibit featuring local instant photographer Kat Bike. Come see Kat’s work at our First Friday Open House on May 3 from 5pm-7pm, nestled conveniently between our first two screenings of the film.
