Film is alive! In more ways that you would even imagine. Scientifically, film is truly alive due to its chemical properties. There is a shelf life on film. It ages as we age. There is depth and richness in film, as there is depth and richness in all of us. It sometimes can be manipulated and coaxed into doing things is was not meant to, as we sometimes can be. Then it can then be developed and and fixed, just as we can. Therefore I do believe that film is alive.
