Happening Group slates forum for ‘Red Archives’

Preservation, distribution of Communist archives underway

MOSCOW — Ten years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, archives from Eastern Europe are moving into the mainstream.

Reps from 15 territories of Eastern Europe and the ex-Soviet Union are signed up for a forum Feb. 28-29 called “Red Archives 2000” in Paris. Organizer of the confab is the Happening Group.

A similar event was held for the first time earlier this year and showed the need for such gatherings, company president Patrick Jucaud said.

Fading history

“For over 85 years, these Communist countries produced political, propaganda and artistic films; newsreels covering war, demonstrations, social achievements, sports and cultural events; and industrial, educational, travel and wildlife documentaries,” Jucaud said. Existing material, however, is often deteriorated and badly cataloged.

“Red Archives” is devoted to encouraging new channels for distribution and preservation of Communist TV and film archives. Jucaud cited the recent restoration of Vietnamese archives by a German company as a successful example of such work.
