A semi-biographical fiction inspired by his father’s work at one of Kodak’s first processing labs, Andrew Norman Wilson’s speculative gloss on the evolution of photo-chemical science entwines multiple perspectives and personas. Co-written by James N. Kienitz Wilkins, Kodak imagines a dialogue between a blind, mentally unstable former film technician and George Eastman himself, recordings of whom play out over a procession of photographs, home video footage, vintage Kodak ads and vivid, computer-generated 3D models.

Winner Found Footage Award, IFFR 2019. Also see Artist Talk Andrew Norman Wilson.
