It was a dark day for film when Kodak killed Kodachrome back in 2009. After Kodachrome stock ran out, there was one final photo lab in the country that could process Kodachrome – Dwayne’s Photo in Kansas. Dwayne’s Photo ran out of the chemicals to process Kodachrome in December 2010, which was the final nail in the coffin for Kodachrome film.
Netflix’s new movie Kodachrome tells the story of a legendary photographer (played by Ed Harris) and his estranged son (Jason Sudeikis) as they embark on a road trip to process his final rolls of Kodachrome film at Dwayne’s Photo in Parsons, Kansas.
Kodachrome had a rich and long history, which you can get a small taste of in the short documentary below.
The Kodachrome movie debuts on April 20 exclusively on Netflix. You can watch it when it releases here on Netflix.
