A selection of images from the Centre national de l’audiovisuel’s (CNA) amateur film collection have been « revisited » and combined with songs to give them new life. « Erënnerung » features breathtakingly beautiful color images of families in the countryside in the 1930s and 1940s, set to a hip-hop song by Nicool, who remembers her grandparents. « Wéi meng Mamm nach huet gesponnen », performed by Claudine Muno, accompanies magnificent images, shot by an amateur film-maker in 1926, whose particular beauty is the result of an accident: when shooting, the camera was not properly closed and the light came in from both sides. These two films are part of the REVISITED series: five emotional stories that originate from the encounter between archival images from the last century and music performed by musicians of today.

« REVISITED, c’est le mariage d’images tournées par des cinéastes amateurs au siècle dernier et une chanson d’aujourd’hui qui aboutit à une histoire émouvante, drôle, triste ou absurde. » (Geneviève Mersch)
