Abstract

Ernest Lindgren was curator of the National Film Archive at the British Film Institute from 1935 until his death in 1973. In many ways he was the antithesis of the Cinémathèque française curator Henri Langlois; where Langlois wanted to save every film possible, collecting them to the point of not being able to preserve them, Lindgren was more selective and meticulous in his acquisitions. In this manifesto Lindgren outlines his vision of the Utopian film archive.
