Side by Side 2012 Official Trailer

As a director, Christopher Kenneally only has one other feature-length documentary to his name. It’s likely you’ve never even heard his name up until now, but the up-and-coming filmmaker has already worked with Martin Scorsese, David Lynch, Steven Soderbergh, Christopher Nolan, David Fincher, James Cameron, George Lucas, Lars von Trier and the Wachowskis — among a few other Oscar winners.

It’s all thanks to Side By Side, an engaging new documentary focused on the battle between film and digital in today’s modern cinematic landscape. Kenneally was able to nab all these names through the help of Keanu Reeves, the film’s producer, interviewer and “host,” who guides us through this complicated subject with pit stops by some of the medium’s most successful artists.
