George Lucas on the importance of preserving film

People who alter or destroy works of art and our cultural heritage for profit or as an exercise of power are barbarians...

In the future it will become even easier for old negatives to become lost and be "replaced" by new altered negatives. This would be a great loss to our society. Our cultural history must not be allowed to be rewritten.
-George Lucas
