The Cinema Travellers highlights a cultural practice deeply embedded in India’s  contemporary history. Prior to the wide accessibility of digital technologies, traveling cinemas were the only vehicle for films to reach India’s rural communities. Five years on the road with the Akshay Traveling Cinema, India’s last remaining traveling cinema, Shirley Abraham and, Amit Madheshiya’s joint project provides a touching insight into the togetherness that the traveling cinema practice has instilled in Indian communities for many decades past and the imminent threat of endangerment technology has introduced to this twentieth century pastime.
