When Polaroid stopped making instant film in 2008, a company named The Impossible Project bought out the old Polaroid instant film manufacturing equipment and decided to keep the instant film production going. The Impossible Project is one of only 2 remaining instant film manufacturers in the world (the other is Fujifilm) and their story of how they came to revive the instant film industry is captured in the short documentary above.

It’s amazing to see that such a small company is handling such an enormous demand for instant film. What’s even more insane is their one-man repair shop handling cameras sent in from all over the world. Turn-around time must be very long.
