Plot Summary
In this documentary, actors, directors, historians and icons, each passionate about film, recount the amount of loss that has plagued archival footage over the years. Even film that has not completely decomposed due to primitive construction has disappeared from the arsenal through loss and human error. In addition, even the quality of more recent films has faded, and the historians discuss how important it is to protect what remains so that our archives are not further compromised.
