Kodak expose le processus de fabrication de la pellicule à l’usine Kodak de Chalon-sur-Saône, alors sur le point de fermer.

Kodak is a looped film recording the production of 16mm film in the Kodak factory in Chalon-sur-Saône, France. Dean has explained: "I was trying to get hold of black and white film for my 16mm camera ... and ... I was told that Kodak had stopped producing it ... I found five rolls in New York and I decided on a whim to think about using it to film the Kodak factory in Chalon-sur-Saône, at this point not knowing that they had just decided to stop all film production there. The idea of the film was to use its obsolete stock on itself. The point is that it’s a medium that’s just about to be exhausted."
