FILM, THE LIVING RECORD OF OUR MEMORY
Film, the Living Record of Our Memory allows a unique and rare approach to the often troubled life story of moving images. Film professionals and film archivists, significant voices that are not usually heard despite their vast knowledge and passion for film, reveal their points of view. Their narrative guides us through the major setbacks, surprises or changes motion pictures have experienced: the evolution of film technology; film’s vulnerability to loss, damage and decay; the creation of film archives and cinematheques; the fragility of digital data; restoration projects; and the growing field of film and digital preservation, which protects and celebrates moving images as cultural heritage.
