Film Restoration: The Technology and Culture of Audiovisual Heritage

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Film Restoration: The Culture and Science of Audiovisual Heritage is the first monograph-length work intended to enable the general public and readers with a humanities background to understand what film restoration does and does not involve. In doing so, Enticknap engages with current debates on audio-visual artefacts and identifies the ways in which traditional methods and approaches within film studies, history and cultural studies fail to provide the tools needed to study and criticise restored films meaningfully and reliably. The book also includes a technical glossary of over 150 terms related to the processes of film restoration.

About the Author

Leo Enticknap is a lecturer in cinema at the Institute of Communications Studies at the University of Leeds, UK. Formerly a projectionist and film archive curator, his research focuses principally on archival film preservation and restoration, moving image technologies more generally and British non-fiction film before 1950.
