Side by Side (2012), the excellent documentary from Christopher Kenneally, arrives at a crucial time for the ever-evolving medium of cinema. Featuring stellar interviews with some of the most important directors working today, including Martin Scorsese, James Cameron, Steven Soderbergh, Danny Boyle and Chris Nolan, the film charts the history and processes of celluloid filmmaking and the rapid rise of digital as a cheaper alternative. It's an intelligently level-headed film which manages to be both hugely informative and thoroughly entertaining. CineVue's Craig Williams spoke with the director Kenneally, and delved into some of the issues raised in the film, and about the future of cinema as a whole.
Craig Williams: How did the film come about? Were all the directors and cinematographers happy to talk about the subject?
Christopher Kenneally: Almost everyone we reached out to in order to try and set up an interview were excited to talk »
