The spectacle of screening movies has long been presented in India by showmen driving cinema trucks to rural villages, where temporary tents are erected and films are screened on 35mm. Celebrating that tradition, viewers follow a team of dedicated technicians who traverse Maharashtra. In each town, their arrival is greeted by boisterous crowds, lured by “movies to touch your soul.”

“It’s seldom that a documentary is this spellbinding, this can’t-move-from-my-seat-or-even-think-of-turning-my-eyes-away bewitching . . . The simple story of three men in India whose passion for the movies goes beyond common sense . . . left me in tears. The Cinema Travelers is a masterpiece, a film from the heart and a testament to everything humanity should believe in wholeheartedly.”  —Huffington Post
