Seems most interesting concept. Trailer:



Description:

""Warsaw Rising" is the world's first feature film made entirely from documentary materials. It tells the story of the Warsaw Rising of 1944 through the eyes of two young reporters, witnesses to insurgent fighting. It uses authentic newsreels filmed in August of 1944. Applying modern technology methods of colorization and audio reconstruction and ensuring the cooperation of the best artists, the "Warsaw Rising" has no equal.

Six hours of original newsreel footage from the Warsaw Rising of 1944, six months of work, a team of militaria, clothing and architecture consultants, urban planners, Warsaw experts and historians, 1000 of colour editing consulting hours, 1200 shots, 1440 hours of colorizing and reconstruction, 112.000 selected frames, 648.000 minutes of reconstruction, 22.971.520 megabytes of data -- these are only some numbers which help appreciate the enormous effort and means dedicated to the "Warsaw Rising" project. The result is a 90 minute completely restored coloured and extremely touching film, which shows the Warsaw Rising with unparalleled realism. (...)"

Wow!!
I missed this post somehow, but this is great stuff Rydygier, i was always fascinated with the Polish people's and the uprise, I watched a video documentary
earlier in the year about how the uprise the fight was tough on the people, losing alot of people in the process but eventually overcoming the Germans.

I would be very interested in seeing this project, the trailer alone has amazing footage retouched!

There are many periods in WW2 like this that should have a project like this, bringing history alive and to the eyes of our growing generations.
The old saying goes forget history is to repeat it.

Rydygier you are from Poland, and live there, where in Poland do you live, and do you live near or in Warzaw, and have you been there if you dont live there,
is there anything there that shows a history of the battles of the uprising fought there? like still ruined buildings, or sites, or anything?

I hope a network like BBC picks it up and translates it. Also, your spelling of color threw me and Google's spell-check off. How do you say "Aluminum"?

1000 of colour editing consulting hours,

You never seen the word spelled like that?
More of a European lingo from what i understand.

Rydygier's post what is "typed" there is not from him, if you click on the utube icon on the video itself it will bring
you to the vid on utube, and in the about section you can read the same exact thing.

The point being is the content of what the film project is about.

I lived in Warsaw about 10 years, moved out about 5 years ago. Never was great Warsaw specialist. Do not know about any ruins left, I consider it most unlikely. After Rising '44 withdrawing germans simply, methodically leveled to the ground most of the city (sea of ruins, like you could see in the "Pianist" movie). After war city was rebuild, part of the old building reconstructed, new raised, mostly ugly (unless you like socrealism style and blocks of flats). Still there is plenty of beautiful places there to see, also some parts survived german's "revenge on Warsaw". For example I lived on Grottger's Street (ulica Grottgera in Polish, that's Mokotów district), in the old, prewar tenements. In that time some just were renovated facades, some still had old, from WWII times, and on these old elevations you could/can see holes from bullets strokes. Heard then, that there is few more such places left. That is the only original remnants of WWII events, I saw. Rest are multiple monuments and commemorative plaques, most of them you probably can find in any good guide book (some random find). But for any interested in Warsaw Rising, primary "absolutelly must see" place would be:

Warsaw Rising Museum

It is one of the best polish museums.

It is worhty to visit Warsaw on 1st August, and during all 63 days of fights period. In that days there are usually organized
historical re-enactments involving many lovers of historical reconstruction groups, showing key events of the Rising in their original locations. Like this:
