A new exhibtion, titled “Frame by Frame – Film restaurieren” opens today at Deutsche Kinemathek with a special event and will run till May 2nd 2022. Film restoration usually takes place in secrecy, in the workshops of the film archives and in the darkrooms of the copy factories. The exhibition brings this craft to light and shows the general public how the film archives work to preserve well-known but also forgotten works of film history and recapture them for the screen – and together with the film material also receive stories and testimonies for the future.
Divided in five chapters, everything that goes with saving films is examined: from the global search for film material and the reconstruction of early sound tracks to color and light determination in Technicolor films.
The exhibition is sponsored by the Governing Mayor of Berlin – Senate Chancellery and the Wüstenrot Foundation.
