The Bozeman Doc Series returns for another season of the year’s best documentaries on Thursday, October 13th, with the Montana premiere of the award-winning documentary, The Cinema Travellers.

Winner of a Special Jury Prize at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, The Cinema Travellers is a colorful journey with the touring cinemas of India. For more than seven decades, trucks weighed down with massive film projectors and theater tents have traveled dusty back-roads to bring the magic of the movies to India’s most remote villages. Though embraced by the villagers for years, with the rise of television and digital technology, the touring cinemas now struggle to stay afloat.

Filmed over five years, The Cinema Travellers accompanies a shrewd exhibitor, a benevolent showman and a maverick projector mechanic who bear a beautiful burden – to keep the last traveling cinemas of the world running.

Gorgeously shot, and filled with great warmth and humor, The Cinema Travellers is a beautiful ode to the love of movies.
