Cinémathèque Suisse

08 Nov. 2007

The visit to Cinémathèque Suisse, the worlds sixth largest film archive, was really astonishing. You can’t believe the amount of paper, film, posters and memories that are stored in this archive. The small group of MIT Club members got an impressive overview of the Swiss film history and current developments in film formats and trends. Personally, I was most impressed by the huge mess in the archive. Piles and piles of paper, demonstrating the absolute enthusiasm of the employees to make film history ready for the future. Thanks to Pierre Ihmle for organizing this great tour to Cinémathèque.
