THE STATUS OF THE (RE)TRANSLATED INTERTITLE in the Restoration and Presentation of Silent Film (completed)

Research project

Supervisor: Paulus Tom

Duration: 01/01/2010 - 31/12/2011

When restoring silent films with translated intertitles, film archives are confronted with ethical, aesthetic and practical problems. Due to the scarcity of scientific research with a focus on the status of translated intertitles, restoration procedures are often ad hoc, i.e. they lack a uniform, scientific approach. By describing, categorising and analysing existing silent films and their translations, the present research project aims to help develop procedures for a scientifically founded restoration of both photographic and textual material.
