They will also consider the films’ restoration principles and theories/practices employed by the archivists, as well as the role of film festivals in regard to film restoration, important auteurs in international cinema, and the practice of writing global film history. Film screenings will be supplemented by daily lectures and discussions, readings, and attendance of panel discussions/symposiums. Fee: TBD. (Offered as needed.) 3 credits
