THE STORY:

Deborah Stoiber wrote -

Conserve an Indian Film! The George Eastman Museum has recently acquired the world’s largest collection of contemporary Indian cinema held by a museum or film archive. The collection consists of 774 prints representing 597 film titles, all in 35mm, made between 1999 and 2013. This exceptional donation represents not only films from the Hindi-language film industry commonly known as “Bollywood,” but also Malayalam, Punjabi, Tamil, and Telugu productions. The languages represented in these films include Assamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu, and Urdu. Many titles are from acclaimed masters of Indian cinema, such as Mani Ratnam, Ashutosh Gowariker, Anurag Kashyap, Nagesh Kukunoor, and Sanjay Leela Bhansali. When they arrived it was discovered that each print was in need of repair and minor treatments before they can be placed in storage. It is a slow, laborious process, but necessary to keep these films alive. It will cost approximately $200 per print for a trained conservator to make the necessary treatments, including repair, winding, re-canning and cataloging these unique prints. Our goal for the 5K run is to conserve 10 prints, for a total of $2,000 in hopes they can be used for exhibition in the future.
