Everything we know about it
Directed by Pan Nalin, the film is titled Last Film Show in English. It’s interesting that the director’s own childhood experiences in Gujarat, where he first fell in love with movies, served as inspiration for the movie. The coming-of-age drama is produced by Siddharth Roy Kapur’s Roy Kapur Films, Monsoon Films, Jugaad Motion Pictures, Chhello Show LLP, and Marc Duale.
According to a press note, the film “is set at the cusp of the digital revolution and follows a nine-year-old boy ensnared by the magic and science of light and shadow that lies behind celluloid film projection.”

The film premiered internationally at the Tribeca Film Festival in June 2021 and won numerous festival honors, including the Golden Spike at the 66th Valladolid Film Festival.
