fascinated by old 35mm color-films


Today I saw a documentary in history lesson: “The Cold War in Colour” by Michael Kloft (Spiegel TV). The documentary shows scenes of the destroyed germany, home movies of the Berlin Airlift, as well as british recordings from building of the Wall in 1961.

The footage showed destroyed cities and homeless people. However, there were some moments where I looked with high attention to the television. Almost everyone had an analog camera hanging around his neck. I was able to identify a Lubitel and a Zenit exactly. It was a great moment in the actual boring history lesson. I was also impressed by the quality of the films, also in this time not everyone had the money to own a color film.

And besides, I wanted to say that this weather is so intolerable. I WANT SUN!
