In Search Of Colour
Thu 01 Jan 1970
To see the real world in films was a pleasurable thrill for cinema audiences at the beginning of the twentieth century, and as a result, the production of non-fiction films reached an all-time high, both in terms of quality and quantity.
This programme of striking shorts comes straight from this years II Cinema Ritrovato festival, and includes some brand new restorations by L’Immagine Ritrovata labs from the original Kinemacolor black and white nitrate positive prints. From a royal procession in India and the everyday life of Eritrean troops in Libia to the beauty of Italian waterfalls, expect a grand tour of the world, in colour.
Presented as part of Cinema Rediscovered on Tour, a Watershed project with support from BFI awarding funds from The National Lottery.
