Celluloid Man
  • Description

    Celluloid Man is a tribute to film archivist and obsessive cinephile P.K. Nair, a man whose childhood fascination with cinema finally led to the creation of the National Film Archive of India. In a country where film preservation was once regarded as irrelevant, Nair's has been a long, hard fight to preserve precious fragments of India's film heritage that would otherwise be lost forever.

    Comparable to France's late, great 'man of cinema', the noted film archivist Henri Langlois, Nair has also influenced generations of Indian filmmakers by introducing them to new worlds through the prism of cinema. Featuring wonderful clips and interviews with many Indian and international filmmakers, this award-winning documentary is both a portrait of a man's passion with film and a love letter to cinema itself.

    This illuminating documentary is presented on DVD for the first time anywhere in the world.

    The DVD features a new, director-approved digital transfer of the film, and includes a newly filmed, exclusive interview with the director, Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound option and an accompanying booklet with an essay by Mark Cousins and extracts from the director's own production diaries.
