23 May 2017 – Il Cinema Ritrovato is one of the world’s major festivals of film restoration and definitely one of the major highlights in a cinephile’s world. The 29th edition presents 500 films from 65 archives, newly restored copies of well-known classics, but also rediscovered rare films: in the traditional « Recovered and Restored » section, at evening events at the Piazza Maggiore (don’t miss « Saturday Night Fever » (1977) by John Badham and « Let’s Get Lost », Bruce Weber’s portrait of Chet Baker), in programmes dedicated to Robert Mitchum, Jean Vigo, Carl Laemmle jr, postwar German director Helmut Käutner and Augusto Genina, one of the most cosmopolitan directors of Italian film history. And there is much more to discover and re-discover. Buena visione! Il Cinema Ritrovato, Bologna, 24 June -2 July 2017.
