A documentary examining the history of film preservation and restoration featuring a host of stars, directors, producers, critics and film archivists who are dedicated to saving this precious art form. An oft-quoted statistic is that half of all sound films have been lost forever and that nearly 90 percent of all silent films no longer exist. This cautionary, eye-opening documentary presents an impassioned case for film preservation, as if any were necessary.
