The Crack

This film is inspired by Leonard Cohen’s famous quote: “There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in”. An old, wise filmmaker takes us through the intricacies of working with analog film: the corn, light leaks and the imperfect yet inherently beautiful developing process. With short glimpses of unique characters, shot entirely on analog film, this piece celebrates the beauty in ugliness, the cracks in our personalities and the quirks of humankind while connecting it to the iconic, flawed look of analog film.
