Millions of hours of film, television and sound are at Risk!
Worn by time, eaten away by acidity, victims of wars, dictatorships, natural disasters, or lack of investment the audiovisual archives of humanity are in jeopardy. No country, even the most advanced in terms of digitization and conservation, will escape this risk of destruction.
We cannot resign ourselves to losing entire volumes of the worldwide audiovisual heritage and endangering the cause of preservation of the world’s cultural identities. It is imperative to ensure that the world’s population is able to transmit their audiovisual memory to future generations.
