Shanghai Audio-Visual Archives is the biggest professional audiovisual organization in Shanghai. More than 100,000 tapes are stored here — they cover the history of Shanghai, of China, even of the world, including all kinds of news documentaries, feature films and historical archive materials since 1898. Once, these precious audiovisual archives were asleep in the warehouse for a long time, but all of these are constantly changing as people pay more attention to history and culture.
Audiovisual archives have gradually become a bridge between history and reality, materials and culture, users and communities. People can learn about the precious past of their community, the city’s history 100 years ago, the earth-shaking changes that have taken place in this country through audiovisual archives. How could these happen? We will tell you the stories.
