The director-DP duo that brought us Sideways - Alexander Payne and Phedon Papamichael, ASC – have reunited for The Descendents.

The film, starring George Clooney, takes you through the emotional journey as a Hawaiian land baron (Clooney) tries to re-connect with his two daughters after his wife suffers a boating accident.

Phedon Papamichael shot on  Kodak VISION3 Color Negative Film 5219 and 5213. “(The photography) is all about the performances and the intimacy of the characters,” says Papamichael.

The film opens in the US this week and that intimacy that is captured on screen is already gaining critical buzz.
