Serge Bromberg on the Genesis of The Chaplin Project
Launched in 1999, The Chaplin Project brings together a consortium of international archives with Lobster Films in Paris and the Cineteca di Bologna in Italy to restore all of Charlie Chaplin’s short films and features. Serge Bromberg, founder of Lobster Films, has played a key role in the restoration of Charlie Chaplin’s earliest films, including Chaplin’s Keystone, Mutual, and Essanay comedies.
 
In this brief audio interview, Bromberg recalls how he first became involved with the Chaplin restorations.

Chaplin’s Essanay Comedies premiere on Blu-ray/DVD November 10th and are now available for pre-order.
