Translated by Johan Wolthuis

After the conference for the conservation of the 70mm processes, the Cinématheque Française in Paris presents eleven films representative for the production of the prestigious 70mm format. From Around the World in 80 Days, produced in 1956, the fifties being the golden age of 70mm production, till "The Master", produced in 2012. In between, a panorama of all kind of genres: musicals like Sound of Music and Hello Dolly!, the war epic Patton, epic stories like Lord Jim and Khartoum, a painter's biography from East Germany GOYA … and the technical processes mostly from America and Russia who gave the directors the possibilities for the creation of films of great value while using the technical skills to realize their great ambitions.
