Watching some old classics on the big screen is a special experience altogether and we don’t get a chance to watch them on the silver screen. To give such an elating experience to the movie buffs, MAMI organizers screen some restored versions of classic films every year.
This year, there are three films lined up under this ‘Restored classics section.’ They are David Lynch’s Blue Velvet, Béla Tarr’s Satantango and Juraj Herz’s Czech drama The Cremator. Lynch’s Blue Velvet is one of the best mind-bending thrillers in Hollywood and it will be a surreal experience for the viewers to catch it in the theaters.
Satantango is a Hungarian classic that has a run time of 450 minutes (7 hours 30 minutes). The cremator is getting screened as a tribute to Herz who passed away last year. Film lovers who love classics are waiting with bated breath to catch these films at the festival.
