"A vigorous, energising account of those providing a valuable cinematic service." - Sunil Chauhan, Eye For Film 

A must-see for cinephiles and 35mm fans, FILM, THE LIVING RECORD OF OUR MEMORY champions the art of film preservation and the importance of archiving and conserving celluloid, even in an increasingly digital world. Featuring interviews with film archivists, curators, and filmmakers including Martin Scorsese, Costa-Gavras, Wim Wenders, and Ousmane Sembene, this potent documentary is an ode to celluloid and the people who love it, paying tribute to the history of cinema and to the skilled technicians and archivists who - when they hold a film print - hold our collective memory in their hands. Film Center exclusive.
