Forbidden City, USA Re-Mix

Sound specialist Joe Milner of Puget Sound re-mixed Arthur Dong’s landmark film Forbidden City, USA during a virtual session under the filmmaker’s supervision. In lieu of re-newing costly music licenses, cues were extracted via digital audio isolation while retaining the dialogue, and new music was laid. The film was digitally restored in 2015 by UCLA Film and Television Archive from original negatives. Read more about Dong’s entire film and video collection at UCLA FTVA here.
