With me being a documentary kind of guy, I’m actually really looking forward to Side by Side. Keanu Reeves has been working behind the scenes to get interviews with a lot of cinema’s greatest creators. Some might ask what they all have in common besides the fact of making films and that is; the jump from celluloid to digital.
I’m always interested in documentaries but of course on this one, the topic helps a lot. It also helps to know that there is an amazing list of talent that has been interviewed for it. It will be nice to see each of those people giving us their insight on the topic of converting filming to digital. Of course, we don’t know how in-depth Reeves will go with the issue that presents itself in Side by Side. So my standards aren’t set too high for Reeves but I do expect to be educated on the topic. Regardless, I’m looking forward to seeing how it is all presented.
Side by Side is set to premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival next month.
Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think of the issue that Side by Side presents.
