Rescuing cultural heritage

THE SLOVAK government has allocated Sk18.3 million (€445,500) to restore and preserve copies of 10 films by the Slovak film director Juraj Jakubisko.

The films are kept in the archives of the Slovak Film Institue (SFÚ) and are currently not being screened because of their poor quality. According to Peter Dubecký, director of the SFÚ, there are films in the institute's archives that are more damaged than Jakubisko's, but his movies are more commercially interesting and are requested most for international festivals.

Jakubisko will be celebrating his 65th birthday on April 30 with a screening of the restored copies in selected cinemas (e.g. Palace Cinemas in Bratislava's Aupark shopping centre).
