Martin Scorsese-Led Film Foundation Turns Focus To African Movies

Quote:
The Film Foundation, the movie-restoration organization founded and chaired by Martin Scorsese, has partnered with the Pan African Federation of Filmmakers (FEPACI) and UNESCO in a project to locate, restore and preserve films made on the African continent. Dubbed the African Film Heritage Project, the group will identify 50 films with historic, artistic and cultural significance, then work to restore them.

I hope this is the relevant sub-forum where I could post this topic, since these studios are in Europe and tackle mainly with international films' restorations.

I think it's time there was a seperate topic about these 2 studios, because we see many posts here and there about certain films and how they change their colors to a specific palette despite year, DOP, director, ethnicity.
At best, the teal affects mainly the greys-blues.
At worst the teal affects the whole image like in this situation:



So, my questions are:

-Do you agree, that there is evidently a trend in the restorations by these 2 studios or is it just a pure coincidence (or a conspiracy theory :lol: ) that dozens of films look exactly the same?
if you agree with the first part of my previous question I go on:
-Why do these studios keep going and do what they do?
-Why this problem hasn't been addressed more officially on the internet but we turn the blind eye?
-Why don't any of the more knowledagble and in the restoration business persons say anything about it and do something to stop it?

Anyway, I hope we have a civil converstation on this matter, which has proven most controversial at other times.

edit:
I see, my thread was moved.
Well, this is exactly what I meant.
Why can't we have a seperate thread, and maybe draw the attention to what's happening there?
if we keep burrying the subject, this thing will go on an on.

Are silent film restorations of films before 24fps became standard, generally restored to playback at the correct speed at when show at 23.97/24p? I'm wondering specifically whether this was the case before HD was standard and the expectation was that they would primarily be seen on a PAL DVD?

With an HTPC, I can get my PAL DVDs playing back at 24p. Do I want to watch the Chaplin Keystone and older Edition Filmmuseum titles like so, or am I introducing slowdown when they were specifically restored for PAL viewing?

Tantalisingly the rushes for Zero de Conduite are shown with the restored Gremillon but unfortunately we have only the 48 minute butchered version of Dainah to savour.

The rushes program at Bologna for Vigo were for l'Atalante, Kevin. I don't recall any rushes program there for Zero. There was a short commentary on the extra minute or so (in three shots basically) for Zero which all amplify the part of Tabard, the queer kid. They are sublime, including a long bedside lover's good night between Tabard an one of the other boys where they start the first talk of a revolt. The first slightly longer shot is the gruesome chalk covered old teacher who fondles Tabard's hand for too long provoking hm to the great outburst ("je vous dit merde!"). And there's a silhouette shot of the "inpector" sticking a hypodermic into his arse.

The 11 reels of rushes are all for l'Atalante and are essential for life. Amongst it all, the cats, Vigo himself snapping the clap board, are four single takes of the Peddler singing his nonsense song to the bar, shot from above, each side of the "cage": with the couple on the other side and within the cage with a tilting camera, all with audio unlike most of the 11 reels. Esienschitz narrated this powerhouse live from offscreen in French, his contribution is of course critical to any possible BD release.

Probably, I think Venice usually only screens premieres of new restorations in its Classics line up.

The newest CNC report includes funding for restorations of Rivette's La Religieuse, Borowczyk's Immoral Women, Grémillon's Daïnah la métisse, and 300 Lumière films.

At long last- I was starting to be concerned A Matter of Life and Death wouldn't see the fancy Archers restoration treatment for some reason!

That may well explain why the DVD / Blu of Frantz Fanon kept getting delayed.

Had a feeling La Verite would be on the docket one day. L-Shaped Room is a very nice surprise.

That animation programme ‘From Jealous Dolls to Brutish Bulldogs’ is right up my street. Hopefully BFI can find a way to put those remastered titles out too.

The archive films are the only reason I'm usually interesting in the LFF. Ticket prices are so high for the interesting films; at least these are at regular BFI prices.

Even in Argentina they have restored several films but not the impressive ones Leopoldo Torre Nilsson made in the 50-60s.
