DIASTOR presenting at the Berlinale 2015

In the context of the retrospective Glorious Technicolor Barbara Flückiger introduced examples of the research within DIASTOR at two occasions. The working group “restoration” of the Deutsche Kinematheksverbund offered the opportunity to give an overview of the numerous case studies undertaken in DIASTOR ranging from the analysis of scanning aspects e.g. of Dufaycolor to methodological questions of photographic documentation of analogue film in the digital domain as a tool for color grading. The panel discussion “Challenges and Opportunities in Restoring Technicolor” was a high profile forum, hosted by Martin Koerber, Head Curator of the Film Archive at the Deutsche Kinemathek, with the experts Paolo Cherchi Usai, Head Curator at the George Eastman House, Ulrich Ruedel, analytical chemist and film restorer, and Schawn Belston, Executive Vice President, Media and Library Services at 20th Century Fox Film. Barbara Flückiger presented the specific example of the Swiss Technicolor restoration “Heidi und Peter” – a collaboration with the Swiss Television SRF.
