Lost Memories: A Short Film by Francois Ferracci

1

A beautiful French-made, English-subtitled short film that uses the difference between analogue and digital technology as a central element.

Last week, we gave you a humorous take on the difference between Film Photography and Digital Photograhy courtesy of this comic from Shoebox.

But now, we’re here to give you a more dramatic and though-provoking comparison in the form of Lost Memories, a short film by Francois Ferracci.

Paris, 2020.
A beautiful couple, a city over-saturated by holograms and digital stream.
A polaroid camera.
Tomorrow will never be the same. — Lost Memories
