New 2K Restoration! Albert and David Maysles’ classic documentary visits the ramshackle mansion of Edith Bouvier Beale and her daughter Edie, cousins of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. This intimate portrait of the eccentiric duo quickly became a cult classic and established Little Edie as a fashion icon and philosopher queen.
About the Restoration
This new 2K digital restoration was undertaken in collaboration with the Academy Film Archive at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Source elements included the original 16 mm camera negative and an existing 16-bit transfer made from the original 3-track magnetic tracks. Thousands of instances of dirt, debris, scratches, splices, warps, and jitter were manually removed for this crisp, colorful new edition.
