Description
Once a year, a parade of traveling tent cinemas bring the wonder of movies to faraway villages in India, but after more than seven decades, this film-exhibition nears extinction. As their cinema projectors collapse and film reels become scarce, viewers are lost to the allure of digital technology. Following two traveling cinemas, we are given an intimate look into the lives of the men who run the exhibitions in their frantic attempt to keep a tradition alive in the midst of a changing medium and dwindling audience.
