Watch What Happens When Recently Discovered Rolls of Film from WWII Are Developed (VIDEO)

The Rescued Film Project is an amazing online gallery of images that were captured on film between the 1930's and late 1990's. The fascinating and poignant video below chronicles the discovery and restoration of 31 rolls of undeveloped film shot by an American solidier during World War II. When you see the resulting photos, prepare to be stunned.

Levi Bettwieser, founder of the Rescued Film Project, says every image in the archive originated as found film from locations throughout the world and came to the organization in the form of undeveloped rolls. The Project has the capability of processing film from all eras—even film that has been degraded by heat, moisture, and age, or is no longer manufactured.

“I perceive all images I restore as being historical. . . but this particular batch of film automatically has the potential of extreme historical significance,” Bettwieser explains.

The website includes a number of other interesting videos and a rich archive of incredible photographs. You can also make a contribution. The Rescued Film Project also has an Etsy store where you can purchase prints.
