Cinema is Everywhere
Posted in 2012, Current Releases, Documentary, January 2012, N/A, Worldwide on October 28th, 2011
A documentary feature film that ties four narratives – from China, India, Scotland, and Tunisia – together with countless insights from venerable filmmakers and ordinary moviegoers. An aspiring actress in Mumbai battles to break into Bollywood; two friends in Scotland take a mobile film festival across the highlands; a young crew in Hong Kong embarks on the shooting of its first film; a Tunisian director anxiously anticipates the premiere of his controversial film at a major festival. These stories are woven together with scenes from video stores, projection booths, studios, cinemas, and slums into a vivid meditation on the power of cinema to shape our world.
Director: Teal Greyhavens
Starring: Javed Akhtar, Shyam Benegal, Fruit Chan
