Recovered & Restored 2013

At this critical and delicate time in the history of cinema, witnessing the transition from film to digital, this classic section, Recovered & Restored, examines and explores restoration and presentation in both formats. A selection of the very best restorations, realised over the past year (and in most cases in recent months) by public and private institutions, will be presented both in 35mm and digital formats during evening screenings at the Piazza Maggiore or at the Cinema Arlecchino. This section offers an extraordinary point of view on technological developments as well as a breath-taking journey through film history: thanks to these restorations we can recapture the lost meaning of these films.

Programme curated by Peter von Bagh, Gian Luca Farinelli e Guy Borlée
