THE CINEMA TRAVELLERS

A DocHouse First. Screening daily from Fri 26 January.
Dir: Amit Madheshiya & Shirley Abraham
India / 2016 / 96mins

★★★★ "An evocative, subtle and heartfelt snapshot" The Guardian

Once every year, traveling cinemas bring the wonder of the movies to faraway villages in India. Seven decades on, as their lorries and cinema projectors crumble and film reels become scarce, their audiences are lured by slick digital technology.

Filmed over five years, The Cinema Travellers accompanies a shrewd exhibitor, a benevolent showman and a maverick projector mechanic who bear a beautiful burden –to keep the last travelling cinemas of the world running.

DocHouse Firsts brings docs to the big screen that wouldn’t otherwise be shown in London. Click here for more info.
