To celebrate The Museum of Modern Art's recent expansion and reopening, the Department of Film initiated a deep dive into its collection to reassess its holdings. The films included in this programme are among the many rediscoveries that have been presented at the Museum since it reopened to the public last October. For years overlooked, or inadequately-preserved, these films have now been painstakingly restored in 4K resolution with every effort made to remain faithful to the original colour palettes. Although only a small selection of films can be shown in this programme, a total of eighteen early colour shorts have been restored as part of this initiative, ranging from handcoloured serpentine dance films from the 1890s, to exquisite stencil-coloured scenics, and previously unseen American Kinemacolor films.

Winsor McCay, the Famous Cartoonist of the N.Y. Herald and His Moving Comics [aka. Little Nemo] (Winsor McCay, 1911)
La voix du rossignol (Ladislas Starevich, 1925)
Technicolor Tests (Pioneer Pictures, ca. 1933-1936)

Restored by The Museum of Modern Art with support from The Celeste Bartos Fund for Film Preservation.
