Jacques Feyder's Les visages des enfants (1925).

And if you like (or have seen a surfeit of) Feuillade, Feyder's Le pied qui étreint (1916) is a fun parody. It's not a short as IMDb claims but a 4-episode serial available you know where.

Didn't know what thread to put it in, but I just started working on my first digital restoration project in grad school! Can't say what film for confidentiality reasons, but it's a silent-era short feature from a well-known-name director, and it's never been released on home media in any form. A pretty minor film overall, but still very fun and exciting.

Neat! Will there be a point at which you can reveal the info or are you basically found to silence for life?

Yes, the current end goal is to make a DCP as part of the institution's rental library, so I'll be able to talk about it once it's public info that the title is being released.

Something to Think About, a Cecil B. DeMille film, has a ridiculously high rating. 8.7/10 with 467 votes.

ICM: 8 checks
RYM: 0 ratings
Mubi: 0 ratings
Letterboxd: 1 rating, 6/10

Well, the title is telling the truth. This is something to think about.
The good news is that 5 years later, it's only a 5.2 at 579 votes!
:think: .. probably better that way?

I'd say it's somewhere in between. I gave it a 7.2/10

A digital cinema package. More or less, a file package that allows for high-quality uncompressed exhibition of digital films. Think of it as the hard-drive that movie theaters get nowadays that contains the films that they show. It allows for high-quality presentation, but also very encrypted too, which is why it's nearly impossible for movie theater employees to leak movies online nowadays. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Cinema_Package

Great - more cinema jargon to pack into the brain. Thanks and enjoy the project! :) Sounds fun
