Instant Dreams movie

The 'story' behind Polaroid



I had no idea that Dr. Edwin Land was the only person who knew the secret formula for the film. This explains why it has been so hard to recreate it.

One of the main problem in re.creating the Polaroid film by Impossible was that some chemical products used in the original production could not be used because of environmental and health safety issues. The most similar substitutes were too expensive for intended use.
Maybe about the formula also some patent/lycens problem was making it difficult. I have some doubts about the lost formula...

But not much hope to see again the peel apart film, why Land Cameras are shown in the trailer ?

Anyway as a committed Pola lover I'll try a way to watch this movie! Thanks Huss for the links!

I think the movie came out mid-2018. Unfortunately, not on Netflix, at least not in Asia.
