The Zapruder film is a silent, 8mm color motion picture sequence shot by private citizen Abraham Zapruder with a home-movie camera. Zapruder filmed President John F. Kennedy’s motorcade as it passed through Dealey Plaza in Dallas, Texas, on November 22, 1963. This film unexpectedly captured the President’s assassination.
In 1997 McCrone Associates worked with the National Archives and the family of the late Abraham Zapruder, to preserve Zapruder’s 8mm film of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. This fascinating video shows how the most most famous 8mm film was digitally restored.
