As suggested by @age in another post, I’m bringing this deeply messed up negative with the potential not only to exercise negative inversion, but also local color corrections (via curves as @age mentioned, or darktable color balance module).
There’s an ongoing and extremely promising effort in refurbishing negative inversion in darktable. No, actually, in making a brand new and better tool, negadoctor, by @aurelienpierre. I risk making bad marketing of the new tool with this messy digitezed negative and careless edit.
Here’s my try.

Since some tools need parts of unexposed film to properly invert the image, follows another image from the same film strip for that sole purpose.
