The Kodachrome Elegies

NEW DOCS

This carefully constructed homage to the popular Kodachrome film stock of the 1950s and ’60s unfolds in three parts. The first part looks at how we grow, the warmth of people laughing and smiling, a parent with a newborn baby. The second examines how we learn and create, cutting together scenes of people exploring subjects and completing projects. Finally, in the third part, in the eerie footage of JFK’s assassination, we are reminded of how ephemeral our lives can be. Taken together, these vibrant, nostalgic capsules of an earlier time observe the cyclical nature of life through a lens of loss. KR
