Tomka and His Friends, across the UK.

29 April 2014

Tomka Dhe Shoket e Tij / Tomka and His Friends from April 29, 2014 in theaters across the UK in "The Cinema of Childhood" Series.

ACP is excited to report that work is well underway on our second feature film restoration in collaboration with Arkivi Qendror Shteteror I Filmit (Albanian Film Archive) and the US Library of Congress Audiovisual Conservation Center. This short clip from the unrestored Tomka and His Friends brings us into the story at the moment where the boys' playing field has been taken over by the occupying German army in the south-central town of Berat, Albania circa 1943. The Library of Congress Audiovisual Conservation Center team will be working diligently to sharpen the image and sound, and create new film and digital preservation masters. Meanwhile, the ACP translation team, headed by Eri Cela, is working to create accurate subtitles to preserve the special expressions of the children.
