Stummfilme für die Zukunft

Silent Movies for Posterity

As a company with a long cinematic history of its own, Bertelsmann is committed not only to the screening, but also to the restoration and digitization of historic silent films. The rationale behind this is the rapidly progressing deterioration of Germany and Europe's silent film heritage, which includes parts of the film stocks held by the historic Ufa company. The urgently needed restoration work cannot be financed by foundations and archives alone. Bertelsmann seeks to set an example here with its involvement: Silent film heritage must be preserved and carefully passed on to posterity.
