After Polaroid stopped manufacturing instant film in 2008 — breaking the hearts of Polaroid lovers around the world — a small new company called The Impossible Project purchased Polaroid’s manufacturing equipment and factory in the Netherlands in an attempt to save the film from extinction. They were successful in doing so, announcing new lines of instant films in 2010. The above video is an interesting mini-documentary that gives us a behind-the-scenes look at what goes on at The Impossible Project.
