All-Is-Well Rick Prelinger is a short film from 2016 released on 16mm. It is held in the Prelinger Archives collection.

All-Is-Well" collects ordinary adventures remembered only because they survive in home movies. Against a backdrop of distant news events, kids stampede for Easter eggs, horses run together, families read pulps and shoot craps, cooks fry, tin-can tourists work hard at leisure, people pose, clown and drink, pull back the husks of sweet corn. For them and for us, remaking the ephemeral gesture is both a small pleasure and an act of survival. The home movie segments used in the film date from 1930 to 1969, the period in which the near-infinite and mostly-unseen archive of home movies that awaits our attention was born. Commissioned by San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Open Space.;Consider watching it a second time with sound turned down and a room filled with people talking.
