This segment of color 16mm film has sprocket hole damage and tears, as well as color fade. Before Kodak's ca. 1979 development of low fade print film stock, Eastman color film had unstable dyes that faded over time. (The exception is Kodachrome, retired in June 2009, which had excellent dye-keeping stability.) Depending on the extent of dye fading, color can sometimes be restored or at least improved. Good environmental storage of low temperature and humidity can slow the rate of color fade.
