I don't think that this is a good voice for future film use, it is waxing poetic rather than moving the uncharted territory of film's visual nature forward. Widely percieved nostalgia is actually one of the enemies of film's future as a viable medium and alternative to digi-crap.

Efke products are gone, but Ilford and Kodak ones are not. To pour time, money and effort into a broken down factory is a sad distraction to where the money could be going in terms of film use awareness, youth and other outreach programs, etc...

This seems like a waste of time and money to me...
