Restoring The Apu Trilogy

Here’s a shortform documentary that would make a perfect distraction for your Sunday afternoon.

Two decades after a fire damaged the master film negatives for Satyajit Ray’s The Apu Trilogy, a team of film preservationists reconstructed the entire film series, frame by frame. The amount of work that went into this restoration should be recognized and applauded.

An Act of Faith: Saving the Apu Trilogy (2015) is available to watch for free on Youtube.
