Undeveloped World War II Film Discovered from The Rescued Film Project on Vimeo.

During World War II, an unidentified American soldier filled 31 rolls of film with photos that he never got to, or had cause to, see developed. Over 70 years later, The Rescued Film Project acquired these rolls and painstakingly developed them in a kitchen sink. Dozens of never-before-seen photos of life during the War were revealed, in remarkable condition considering the decades they had spent tightly wound in a film canister.

This 10-minute video from The Rescued Film Project details how the rolls were developed and includes some beautiful images. You can check out the entire gallery on the project's website here.
