The Cinema Travellers

The magic of watching films on the big, fluttering canvas is brought to life in a beautiful and lively film about India's travelling cinemas.

For over 70 years, India's travelling cinemas have brought colourful adventures to all corners of the vast country, where people gather on market squares to watch films in tents and in the open air. And if you have forgotten how magical such an experience can be – or if you have never had the opportunity yourself – then the Indian 'The Cinema Travellers' is a must! A vibrant film culture is also a common social denominator and a unifying force in a country with great differences and many minorities. And even though the caravan cinema with its film reels is being threatened by technological progress, the passionate people running it refuse to close it down. For when the light from the screen is mirrored in the faces of the spectators, the entire hassle has been worth it. Shirley Abraham and Amit Madheshiay's film has itself been a travelling success since its premiere in Cannes, and must of course be seen in the cinema.
