Amit Madheshiya and Shirley Abraham's award-winning documentary The Cinema Travellers shows you a different side of India and their love for pictures. They take you on a wonderful and magical ride through the small towns and villages of India and how they get to watch films once a year in a pitched tent. A small band of dedicated folks lug their 35mm projectors, the film cans and other analog paraphernalia to screen them. This was the old way of watching films that is disappearing.
We sat down to speak wtih Madheshiya on how he got to make this film with Abraham and what were the challenges they faced in making it. Madheshiya has a wonderful eye for capturing those fleeting moments of utter joy and absorbtion in the face of the audience and also the dedication of people behind the projectors. Madheshiya taught himself to edit by reading Walter Murch (The Godfather) books. Murch is someone that Madhehiys hopes to meet one of these days.
This interview was recorded at the 2017 San Francisco International Film Festival.
