A major concern of the Austrian Film Museum at present is the preservation and presentation of its large holdings of amateur films. Almost all are unique objects, surviving only as single prints on "obsolete" film formats like 9.5mm. Their ability to record "the other side of life", in contrast to what was seen on commercial cinema screens, makes these films extremely valuable as historical documents. Only with the aid of digital technology and expert treatment in highly specialised laboratories can they be adequately preserved for the future.
Restored in 2K from the original 9.5mm prints (Output to 35mm). In Collaboration with La Camera Ottica (Gorizia)
