The film is based on A.G. Sulzberger's 2010 New York Times article "For Kodachrome Fans, Road Ends at Photo Lab in Kansas" about a father and son who take a road trip to Kansas in order to develop photographs at Kodak's last Kodachrome lab before it closes its doors forever.

Did You Know?
There were two types of Kodak films. One to be printed in photographic paper and another to be projected in slides like the one Ed uses in the movie. Both developing processes were different too and had 12, 24 and 36 shot roll lengths. Kodachrome slide film came in 2 different ASA ratings, 25 and 64. Kodacolor film was for printed pictures ASA 100. Kodachrome 64 was used by Ed (distinctive red and yellow box). See more
The drum kit Ben plays is too new to have belonged to Matt like Ben says. Those two haven't even seen each other for at least ten years, but the Sonor Vintage Series drum kit came on the market in 2015. See more
People are taking more pictures now than ever before, billions of them, but there are no slides, no prints. Just data. Electronic dust. Years from now when they dig us up there won't be any pictures to find, no record of who we were or how we lived.
