In brief: Steampunk Connection (2019) Fantasia 2019
A big part of the film is that if you've have an interest in steampunk, you've been here before. Odds are you've seen a couple of similar films previously. I know I've seen reviewed a couple here at Unseen Films that covered similar portraits of fans of the "genre". Having seen the other films there is nothing new here other than the people profiled. If you click with the various people then you will enjoy this film ore than I did.
For me the point where the film soared was with its clips of a steampunk world. Looking at the images of the various steam punk creations, or watching the film clips that show us a world that might have been are magical. It was the fantasy images more than the real people that kept me watching.
If you're a fan this is a must. If you don't know what stea punk is take a look. If you've seen other steampunk doc, flip a coin.
