PAN listed footage photo agency Global ImageWorks has announced a new exclusive representation (outside Germany) of the Open Memory Box collection, an outstanding collection of more than 400 hours of home movies from behind the Iron Curtain.
The carefully curated footage, all digitised and transferred to HD, captures life in East Germany and elsewhere from 1947 to 1990.
PAN Researcher notes:
• While exploring the archive and viewing a film, simply click on ‘BOX >’ to see the contents of the BOX where a roll originates. In BOX click on a thumbnail to jump to that spot in the ROLL.
• Explore themed compilations in the ANTI-ARCHIVE by clicking on any of the titles at the bottom of the window.The full ROLLS are available to view by clicking ‘ROLL” while viewing.An added treat is the Stories section where you can hear the stories behind the footage from the people who lived it. Their accounts provide wonderful depth and life to the footage.
