You may or may not know this, but there are no longer any developers of Kodachrome, the iconic but increasingly irrelevant camera film. The last remaining establishment which did (until 2010, that is) was Dwayne's Photo in Parsons, Kansas, and they've gotten a fair amount of press and attention for being the last purveyors of a quickly disappearing art. Now, Xander Robin has made a short film about Dwayne's Photo, as well as the laborious process that is film development. You'll also get a quick history lesson in camera film in the just-under 10 minute film.
