Below is information regarding the repatriation of American films from foreign archives to preservation institutions in the United States.
Repatriation is based on the Latin word ‘patria.’ It is the act of bringing something back to the homeland. That something can be a person or an object. On this occasion it is the repatriation of motion picture films.
