“Il Cinema Ritrovato, l’éden des cinéphiles”

Le festival de Bologne, consacré aux films de patrimoine restaurés, s’est achevé dimanche sur un record de fréquentation. Paradis des cinéphiles, il attire aussi la foule sur la Piazza Maggiore, œuvre à reconsidérer le passé du 7e art et à réviser les jugements sur le cinéma italien. Quiconque n’a jamais vécu l’expérience des projections nocturnes en plein air sur la Piazza Maggiore de Bologne, immergé au milieu de 8 000 spectateurs, dont beaucoup assis à même le pavé, ne saurait prétendre connaître le plaisir du cinéma. Celui de son essence originelle.

“Il Cinema Ritrovato 2018”

Launched in 1986 as a relatively modest, three-day affair, the festival has grown to become one the biggest showcases of its kind in the world. This year, around 500 films will screen over nine days through July 1. The event is organized by the Cineteca di Bologna, one of the world’s major film archives, whose L’Immagine Ritrovata lab has been restoring and preserving the legacy of cinema for over twenty-five years.

It’s strictly unscientific, but it seemed like an especially strong year for early films – with strands devoted to 1898 and 1918 running through the festival (curated by Bologna’s silent doyenne Mariann Lewisnky), and even a “mutiflix” special, offering a daily dose of the Wolves of Kultur serial in the soon-to-be-renovated Cinema Modernissimo. The silent gods smiled on us this year, even if they worked in mysterious ways.
