In 1947, a genius named Edwin Land invented instant photography. With a single shutter click and after just a few minutes, a moment could be immortalized. This crucial innovation opened the door to creativity to thousands of artists. Today, with the decline of analogue photography, instant photography has returned, reviving the desire to capture unique image fragments. Built in three parts around the themes of the life, death, and rebirth of the Polaroid, this inventive documentary traces the history of instant photography.
