The DEFA Foundation presents: DEFA Digital - fresh colors for films from the 1980s

ICH LIEBE DICH – APRIL! APRIL!, 1987

Color grading poses a particular challenge in the digital restoration of analogue films. What criteria exist when the original lighting and colors have to be maintained or re-created? What has to be taken into account when an analogue print is turned into a digital reproduction? These questions will accompany this film evening which features two premieres of digital restorations: In JADUP UND BOEL (Rainer Simon, GDR 1981, premiered 1988) a small town mayor is reminded of an early love of his whom he abandoned and forced to examine critically not only his political attitudes but his private life as well. In the comedy ICH LIEBE DICH – APRIL! APRIL! (Iris Gusner, GDR 1987), the student Caroline deliberates how to confess to her mother, a successful and divorced lawyer, that she secretly married Tom.
