In 2008, The Motion Picture Preservation Lab completed a full digital restoration of James Blue’s monumental film, The March to mark the 50th anniversary of the The March for Jobs and Freedom. The original negatives assembled by James Blue were scanned and three months were spent restoring defects in the image and enhancing the audio track.
