I just watched this mini-doc on Kam70‘s blog. It’s about The Rescued Film Project and the discovery/processing of 31 rolls of film. Its not just ANY film. These photos were taken by an American WWII soldier 70+ years ago!
The project itself is crucial. In attaining a complete understanding of our history as humans, we can understand things from a deeper perspective. Somebody’s voice speaks through the images. They capture glimpses into a world so removed from our own. The fact that this man is saving old film and developing it is SO important to attaining a better understanding of our roots and the construction of values we have today.
∴ Film is vital •
It shouldn’t something written off, nor should it become obsolete. (more…)
