For decades, travelling showmen have brought the wonder of the movies to faraway villages in India. But now, as their cinema projectors crumble and film reels become scarce, an unlikely trio must join forces to keep the last travelling cinemas of the world running.

Once every year, travelling 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.

A must for anyone with a passion for the pictures, THE CINEMA TRAVELLERS shines a light on the magic of the silver screen and those that cherish it in an ever-changing multi-media world.

Directed by Shirley Abraham and Amit Madheshiya, the film is out on 26th January and you can book tickets at Bertha DocHouse.
