Film, mémoire vivante de notre temps

Canada, Spain
English, French, Spanish

In the age of digitalization, our film heritage is far from being fully safeguarded. In fact, a large part of our film history and cinema is already lost forever. If, however, we can still manage to see films over 125 years old, it is thanks to the ongoing and often unsung work of archivists, curators, technicians, and filmmakers around the world. This documentary, a tribute to their work, gives them a voice to explain how they manage to unearth and preserve old films, and the importance they attach to their efforts.
