dossiers

On a regular basis, EYE pays special attention to parts of the collection, or to current events that have a link to the collection. 

All sorts of collection issues are addressed: is it possible to restore a film when the original color process no longer exists? How do two different cuts of the same film compare to each other? What do a company’s accounts reveal about a night out at the cinema 100 years ago?
