The first part of the photographic documentation by DIASTOR for the restoration of “Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari” (Germany 1919) is now online.
The restoration by the Friedrich-Wilhelm-Murnau-Stiftung in Wiesbaden is currently under way under the supervision of Anke Wilkening at L’Immagine Ritrovata in Bologna (see previous posting here) and will have its premiere at the Berlinale Film Festival in February 2014.
The images from the tinted and toned nitrate print of the Cinémathèque française are now displayed in the corresponding pages of Timeline of Historical Film Colors, created and curated by Barbara Flueckiger, project leader of DIASTOR:
