Abstract

Film archivist Paolo Cherchi Usai is the senior curator of the Motion Picture Department at George Eastman House and cofounder and codirector of the Pordenone Silent Film Festival. In this manifesto, named after the founding curator of the BFI National Archive, Cherchi Usai challenges many of the sacred cows of film archiving, arguing that a pragmatic approach to archiving must develop in the face of both the realpolitik of contemporary State funding and the chemical and chimerical state of film stock.
