Please Don't Take My Kodachromes Away!

There was charming program on ABC last night called "First Person Kodachrome" which was a beautiful reminder of the value of film in a digital age.
The filmmaker reflects on the slide shows his father had in his childhood,and how rich the Kodachrome colour was when projected on a large screen.
He inherited the slides on his father's death and he used them in his own performance art, when he projected them onto a variety of objects, including himself!
Sadly he became aware that they were gradually losing their colour and vibrancy, but would never throw them away as the film was actually there when the photos was taken all those years ago.  They were a physical link to his past, unlike the digital images of today.

It's worth a look.
