Perhaps some of you good people will explain to me how it was all done from start to finish. Thanks

I *believe* they printed out a digital negative of the girl portrait. It was printed out onto multiple sections of transparency that were then taped together. They also treated a large piece of fabric (>24 m^2) to make a cyanotype contact print. Out in the town square they quickly laid out the fabric and overlaid the negative in the bright sun. Once exposed sufficiently they quickly rolled up the fabric and developed it.

Thank you, wyofilm. I don't think I missed the bit about making of the digital negatives and joining them. I'd have thought that it would have been worthwhile to have described the process. It was great form but little substance as the saying goes

You are absolutely right - the video was short on technical details. I think the excitement of the event was the filmmakers focus.
