Film Preservation in Latin America: Pasado, Presente, Futuro

Harold M. Williams Auditorium
Free | Advance ticket required
Film preservation is critical for the world's cultural heritage and the medium is in danger of becoming obsolete. As film labs are closing worldwide, funding remains an ongoing challenge, and restoration efforts often need to be done collaboratively with support from multiple outside organizations. This event will bring together representatives from Latin American archives to showcase restored films and new archival "discoveries" from their collections as well as to discuss challenges in maintaining their countries' cinematic legacy.
