“In just under 120 years of film history several hundred cinematic colour processes have emerged, many of which had their roots in nineteenth century still photography. To date, though, we still lack a comprehensive research publication that connects the technical foundations of these processes to their respective contemporary reception and their aesthetic or narrative uses.”

Concerned with “the perception and transformation of film colours as a result of their digitization,” Dr. Barbara Flückiger, professor for film studies at the University of Zurich, has recently launched the revamped Timeline of Historical Film Colors.  Beautiful images and bibliographies of technical and primary documentation are available arranged by either Flueckiger’s classification scheme of processes or in a chronological timeline.
