Bringing their preservation stories to this year’s Amazing Tales from the Archives are filmmaker and restoration expert Georges Mourier, who is currently overseeing a six-and-a-half-hour restoration of Abel Gance’s Napoleon for the Cinémathèque Française, in partnership with Francis Ford Coppola and the Film Preserve Ltd; Peter Schade (VP, content management) and Emily Wensel (director, content mastering) at Universal Pictures, whose new silent film preservation initiative includes the premiere of the restored The Last Warning; and Bryony Dixon, senior curator of silent film for the British Film Institute, who returns to San Francisco with more tales of treasures from BFI’s National Archive.
