The Mystery of the King of Kinema - The research

video

We spent many months in cinematheques and film collections
searching for Max films
We have re-discovered at least 12, presumably lost





Juan Lorenzo Prada's work was really crucial
during the research process
Here, on our way to the lab to pick film transfers to HD

Thanks to all the cinematheques and museums that helped us: Filmoteca Española, Filmoteca de Catalunya, Filmoteca Valenciana, British Film Institute, The Library of Congress, Cineteca del Friuli, Deutsche Kinemathek, The Eye Film Institute, Rosebud Films, Video Mercury, etc.
