Movies that Matter: The Cinema Travellers (2016)

September 27, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm MDT

Showmen riding cinema lorries have brought the wonder of the movies to faraway villages in India once every year. Seven decades on, as their cinema projectors crumble and film reels become scarce, their patrons are lured by slick digital technology. A benevolent showman, a shrewd exhibitor and a maverick projector mechanic bear a beautiful burden – to keep the last traveling cinemas of the world running.

Free for students with ID and community by donation ($5.00 – $10.00 suggested), all proceeds go towards the Campus Food Bank.

30 minutes Q&A via Skype with Amit to follow the screening. https://www.facebook.com/events/124633381596907/, http://moviesthatmatter.org
