We are a community of strangers. Even though most of us never met the names on this marquee, they’ve given parts of themselves to us, and we’ve given something in return. It’s a strange family, but it’s our connection that makes us sad when our brothers and sisters leave us.

As they do every year, Turner Classic Movies has put together a video that honors the filmmakers who died in 2012. It’s a soaring tribute intercut with shots of Atlanta’s Starlight Drive-In coming to life in glorious 35mm.

It’s stunning, and it’s absolutely worth it to take six minutes out of the day to remember some of the members of our film family.
