The Cinema Travellers (2016)
Critic Reviews for The Cinema Travellers
A subtle sense of mortality enters in the final third, when several of the men decide to replace one of their 35-millimeter machines with a digital one and another projectionist discusses his retirement, but on the whole this is lively and life-affirming.
Three Indian men involved with their country's traveling-movie industry face an uncertain digital future in this mournful, moving doc.
Shot over five years, their observational, gently woven elegy to the last gasp of celluloid feels somewhat overstretched at feature length, yet it contains some of the most magical images you'll see this year.
It's a charming movie, although I wondered if it wasn't a bit fetishistic about the kit, and incurious about the films and audiences.
