Film is fragile, according to the BFI’s new supercut of some iconic British films.
Highlighting the importance of the BFI’s restoration efforts, ‘Film is Fragile’ is a montage of some of the best-known scenes in cinema, depicting characters escaping from something just off the edge of the screen…
28 Days Later, A Clockwork Orange, and the Worlds End are just three of the films included in the short, which takes in all eras and genres, in black and white and in glorious colour.
As AdWeek says, ‘for movies that have been damaged or have begun to disintegrate, it’s critical to act before the action they contain fades to black forever’.
