Where We Stand is a haunting portrait of theatres shot on handmade 16mm iodo-bromide emulsion. With a strong commitment to retaining the language of film, Lindsay McIntyre's compelling project takes a hard look at the fragile future of films made on film in a digital age.
Where We Stand is presented in partnership with the Calgary Society of Independent Filmmakers' $100 Film Festival, running February 25 - 27th at Arts Commons' Engineered Air Theatre.
