Default Fascinating online documentary about privately photographed films during the TR era..

Hey Guys
I thought you might be interested in this website which highlights newly discovered, privately photographed films made during the TR era (most of them in color):

https://www.zdf.de/dokumentation/zdf...ml#xtor=CS5-95

If you have the time, watch the 45 minute documentary showing the films that are being discovered in attics, basements, etc. and the stories behind them. It's in German of course but still extremely fascinating (and tragic at times).
I have to say all these color films as well as slides from the period being found are becoming overwhelming. On the one hand the prices for such material is ridiculously high and yet on the other, because so much is being found, interest is begining to wane because of over saturation.

These are great pieces of film. Too bad, as usual, they have to have professorial talking heads interrupting the flow, telling us what we should think about it. Without which, no doubt, they probably could not be shown.
