The Cinema Travellers
Directed by Shirley Abraham, Amit Madheshiya
India 2016, 96 min
Hindi, Marathi with English Subtitles
A moving homage to the bygone era of celluloid, The Cinema Travellers captures the splendor of the moving image through India’s traveling movie caravans. Shot over five years, this intimate documentary takes the viewer on a cinematic journey joining the undaunted technicians, the projectionists who create movie magic, and the boisterous, overflowing crowd that await at each stop. The seeds for the film were planted by director Amit Madheshiya’s award-winning 2010 photography show of these mobile cinemas. That experience inspired Madheshiya and co-director Shirly Abraham to join the circuit with Akshay Touring Talkies company.
Expected Guests in Attendance: Directors Shirley Abraham and Amit Madheshiya expected to attend April 9th.
Date & Time: April 9, 6pm at SFMOMA
