Seven Samurai in 4k

samuraiDie ersten Still sehen mir (sehr) viel zu dunkel aus, aber die sind mit ihrer Arbeit an der 4k-Restauration von Kurosawas „Seven Samurai“ ja auch noch lange nicht fertig: „Toho converted the film’s nearly 30,000 frames into digital data and then painstakingly gone back through frame by frame to restore the image quality and convert the movie to 4K. […] Original film prints are being used for the restoration and not the original negative. The reason, AV Watch explains, is that Toho doesn’t know where the negative is. The shooting film was highly combustible, so it’s possible the negative might have even been discarded.“
