Restoring films is preserving culture, feels Gulzar

Veteran writer-lyricist-filmmaker Gulzar says film restoration, which has been neglected for a long time in India, equals preservation of culture. “Handling old films, restoring them and preserving them is like preserving your culture,” Gulzar said.

The Film Heritage Foundation will be setting up a week-long school, focused on film preservation and restoration, starting Feb 22-28 at Films Division here. The school will consist of lectures, presentations and practical classes on film preservation and restoration that will be conducted by experts in the field.
There will also be a daily screening of a restored classic preceded by an introductory talk on the restoration.
