FILM, THE LIVING RECORD OF OUR MEMORY
NYC PREMIERE Much of our audiovisual heritage has been lost forever, but film archivists, curators, technicians, and filmmakers from around the world are hard at work preserving what they can. In this entertaining and celebratory documentary that will delight cinephiles and beginners alike, we learn what film preservation is and why it is needed. Wim Wenders, Jonas Mekas, Ken Loach, Patricio Guzmán, and George A. Romero are some of the makers that infuse this expansive film with anecdotes, memories, and historical truths. – Ruth Somalo
