World Cinema Foundation
Cannes Classics Selection 2008
Three cinematic gems were screened in the Cannes Classics section: SUSUZ YAZ (Metin Erksan 1964), TOUKI BOUKI (Djibril Diop Mambéty 1973) and HANYO (Kim Ki-Young 1960).
Established by Martin Scorsese, the Foundation supports and encourages preservation efforts to save the worldwide patrimony of films, ensuring that they are preserved, seen and shared. Its goal is to defend the body and spirit of cinema in the belief that preserving works of the past can encourage future generations to treat film as a universal form of expression.
