Celluloid Man

Nov 10, 2013 @ 12:00 pm

A celebration of 100 Years of Indian Cinema, and a must-see for cinephiles and Indian history enthusiasts! Over 12,000 films have been preserved, since the National Film Archive of India was founded in 1964. However, over the last 40 years, in a culture that is apathetic to the artistic value of cinema, the archive has grown increasingly dilapidated. Featuring interviews with the veritable who’s who of the Indian film industry, Dungarpur creates a compelling portrait of the NFAI’s heyday and of P.K. Nair — the founder of the National Film Archive of India and a man with a passion for celluloid.
