In May 2023 a disastrous flood hit Emilia Romagna (IT). This disaster also affected a film archive. This video is about the rescue of the 8mm and super8 reels of a family from Forlì (IT).


RI-PRESE was asked to offer help in saving as much film as possible. The mission is managed by RI-PRESE memory keepers in collaboration with the Italian association Re-framing home movies and with the Luav University of Venice. The films were saved using the archival Film scanner HDS by Filmfabriek.

The video is made by Furio Ganz and Otis Sambugaro.
