Screened as part of the 26th annual Seattle International Film Festival, "Cinerama Adventure" is director Dave Strohmaier's tribute to and about the Cinerama process.

From the Festival program: "This work-in-progress documentary is an overview of the origins of the Cinerama Process, the films it was used in and the filmmakers who used it. It features spectacular footage taken both in front of and behind the scenes on many of the films, as well as in-depth inteview with many of the key directors, actors, producers and technicians who worked the medium."

As noted in the program, the version screened (as part of "Cinerama Day" at the Seattle International Film Festival) is a "work-in-progress", but at its evidently advanced stage of production promises to be an important and long-needed historical reference of the Cinerama process. Not only did I find "Cinerama Adventure" informative, but it is also highly entertaining.

This (video) documentary is a "must" for anyone interested in cinema history and presentation. Hopefully "Cinerama Adventure" will be distributed soon. See www.cineramaadventure.com for more information.

Elsewhere on this site I've also posted a review of the presentation of *real* Cinerama as part of the Seattle International Film Festival.

(I'm in no way associated with "Cinerama Adventure" or Dave Strohmaier. I just think it's one of the coolest film documentaries I've seen in a long time, and deserves exposure.)
