Shivendra Singh Dungarpur recently discussed the restoration efforts undertaken by his company, the Film Heritage Foundation. Notably, their current projects include Sholay. This is exciting news, given the foundation's remarkable track record in restoring acclaimed Indian films such as Thampi, Kalpana, and more recently, Manthan. The foundation also facilitated 4K restorations of Dev Anand's classics, including CID, Guide, Jewel Thief, and Johny Mera Naam, which were re-released nationwide in India to celebrate Dev Anand's centenary. The Film Heritage Foundation also collaborated with Mani Ratnam to preserve several of his films.

One is the importance of the film. Specifically with regional cinema or films from around India. Then it is the material, the conditions of the prints, negatives.

This year in addition to Manthan, we have two other important films restored, Nirad Mohapatra's Odia film Maya Miriga (1984) and Girish Kasaravalli's Ghatashraddha (1977).

In the pipeline are Uttra (2000), Dev Benegal's English August (1994) and In Which Annie Gives It Those Ones (1989), with Arundhati Roy.

We are working with partners on restoring Badnam Basti (1971), Sholay (1975) and Do Bigha Zamin (1953).

We will also restore Araner Din Ratri (1970), where we are working with the Film Foundation and Wes Anderson.

It's always a collaborative process. For Do Bigha Zamin, we got the materials in India, the scanning was done at L'Immagine Ritrovata in Bologna and the Criterion Collection is managing the actual restoration.
