Watch: Martin Scorsese Talks Lovingly About Film Restoration & How 'The Seven Year Itch' Spurred His Preservation Work

There are few filmmakers — or people — as dedicated, knowledgeable and passionate about cinema and its history as Martin Scorsese. A virtual walking encyclopedia about any corner of film lore you can think of, he remains fascinated and excited by movies and filmmakers, but in particular is concerned with making sure the early days of the art form aren’t lost to the dusts of time. Through The Film Foundation and the World Cinema Foundation, he has worked tirelessly to preserve and restore films for future generations.

Always an immensely compelling person to hear discuss film (just see “A Personal Journey with Martin Scorsese Through American Movies” or “My Voyage To Italy” if you need proof), this brief little video is worth a spin. Recorded for the upcoming Toute la Mémoire du Monde: Festival International du Film Restauré, where Scorsese was allowed to select a handful of films to be screened, the director shares an anecdote about a ’70s presentation of “The Seven Year Itch” that made him realize how fragile the state of older films were, and in general weaves some really wonderful reflections on the timelessness of cinema.

Give it a watch below. Toute la Mémoire du Monde: Festival International du Film Restauré runs from November 27th to December 2nd in Paris.
