A decade ago, the single greatest change in the history of cinema occurred: the shift from recording and projecting movies on celluloid film to digital counterparts. As film projectors were being ripped out of cinemas and film appeared to be facing its death knell, documentarian and projectionist Rob Murphy picked up his camera and began recording what he thought was the end of an era.

Now a feature-length documentary, the resulting 10-year adventure ended up crossing three continents as Rob explored every facet of film preservation, uncovered a secret world of projectionists, and bore witness to a rebirth.
