    The restoration of the Powell and Pressburger's 1948 technicolor masterpiece The Red Shoes shows how modern restoration projects can add value to a film. The commercial worth of restored films increase as they become available to new high definition television audiences. Restored films also enjoy added cultural value, as journalists and critics report its impact at festivals and the celebrities and opinion formers who are linked to it. The restoration also speaks eloquently of our growing attachment to the era of cinema that has already passed, one that gains new life in such digital projects.
