He Develops Thirty-One Rolls of 70-Year-Old World War II Film, But What Images They Hold Leaves Him at Loss for Words


The Rescued Film Project is an Idaho-based effort to collect, develop, and preserve old film rolls. The project tends to direct its attention toward the time period from 1930-1990.

Levi Bettwieser, the founder and main operative of the Rescued Film Project, obtains undeveloped rolls via auction and donation from people all over the country. He even maintains an archive of developed photographs on the project’s website.
