Fixafilm at Arri Archive Workshop

2018/06/18

 Two of the Fixafilm team – Lukasz Ceranka and Piotr Jedruszczak – represented us during this year’s Arri Archive Workshop in Munich – one of the largest European events for digital restoration specialists.

At Arri, Lukasz Ceranka, head of Fixafilm’s restoration department, had the pleasure of giving a lecture on how precise film restoration should be, considering the costs entailed and the capabilities of the human eye. His speech went down very well and the audience’s questions were endless.

Apart from lectures and presentations of the latest software and equipment for restoration, the workshop participants also had the opportunity to examine some more complex examples of restoration. There was also time for discussions, exchanging experience, and establishing international cooperation.
 

 
 

Classic Italian horror back on the big screen

2017/08/14

On August 2, a restored version of Dario Argento’s cult film Suspiria had its world premiere at the Fantasia International Film Festival in Montreal. Fixafilm was responsible for its digital restoration.

Suspiria exposes its audience to a new experience, where emotions triumph over logic. The film’s expressive photography, supersaturated colours, violence, and exceptional soundtrack all shock the viewer and drill into their subconscious.

Suspiria tells the tale of Suzy Bannion, a young American who arrives in Vienna to attend the city’s most famous ballet school. Directly after her arrival, she finds that strange, appalling things are happening there. Young girls are dying one by one in terrifying circumstances, while the dance instructor, staff and headmistress seem unaware of the danger. Immersed in a surreal, nightmarish world of magic, fear and blood, Suzy tries to discover what secrets the place holds.
