This engrossing documentary explores film as an archive of human history, one which is vital that we preserve in all its rich diversity. It shows how the recorded image in all its forms, from cinema to home movies to corporate archives to YouTube videos, is one of our most important resources and the closest thing we have to a collective memory, and vital as a means of recording lived history. But all film formats, from celluloid to digital and everything in between decay, and it is up to the world’s preservationists to maintain the stability and integrity of this global memory bank. Featuring interviews with conservations, archivists, restorers, technicians and curators from around the world, as well as some of world cinema’s leading lights, Film, The Living Record Of Our Memory is truly global and inclusive in its scope.
