Our take

A celebration of the incredible life and work of film archivist P. K. Nair, Celluloid Man is an essential cinematic chronicle of Indian film history. Through conversations with Nair, filmmakers, and historians, this sincere documentary pays a heartfelt tribute to the keepers of cinephilia.
