Where Are
My Children

(1916)

 

The reconstruction of Where Are My Children was conducted by the Library of Congress in 2000 utilizing the surviving three reels of an incomplete 35mm print held by the library, a reedited 35mm Dutch-language version held by collector Jan Zaalberg in the Netherlands, and the equivalent of approximately 1.5 reels surviving in a 16mm reduction print. Sequencing the surviving footage and recreation of the original color-toning were made possible by consulting 1916 postproduction paperwork held by historian Kevin Brownlow.
