Making a pit-stop in Los Angeles to promote his new film SIDE BY SIDE, KEANU REEVES took a break from the on-going production of his big-screen directorial debut MAN OF TAI CHI, to spend a little time with select entertainment reporters. A top-notch documentary he co-produced and hosts on the subject of digital technology as it pertains to contemporary filmmaking, SIDE BY SIDE is sure to get some attention come awards season. Interviewing a collection of filmmakers that includes such heavyweights as LANA and ANDY WACHOWSKI, BARRY LEVINSON, LENA DUNHAM, DANNY BOYLE and GEORGE LUCAS (to name just a few), REEVES is conducting as much a wake for traditional film as a celebration of digital technology. During our interview, REEVES reflected on the eventual loss of photochemical film as a tool.
SIDE BY SIDE opens in Los Angeles Friday, becomes available via VOD 8/22 and opens in New York 8/31
