Restored & Unseen

Restored classics and rediscovered films that deserve a new audience.

At last, a chance to see that Italian classic that’s been on the list for so long? Or relish that wonderful restoration of Blue Movie, the Netherlands’ most talked-about nude film of the seventies, when the Bijlmer district was still a sexual paradise? Restored & Unseen is a biweekly programme featuring classics and recent restorations, with introductions by experts.

For Restored & Unseen, Eye draws on its own collection and on the international repertoire of restored prints from foreign archives and the festival circuit. Films for aficionados. Your chance to tick off from your list that quirky classic starring Michel Piccoli, relive an old personal favourite in a new guise or simply allow yourself to be surprised.
