Review of Il Cinema Ritrovato on Tea with Culture

Last month, I wrote about my trip to Bolgna to attend Il Cinema Ritrovato. I reently sat with fellow cinephile Faisal Al Zaabi, who was also at the film festival, to discuss our experiences and highlights. We also discussed also discuss the lack of institutions in the Arab world to archive and restore films and the lack of seeing old Arab films on the big screen. 

We sat with Wael Hattar and recorded this discussion for our Tea with Culture podcast. I really enjoyed our discussion and hope you enjoy it too.
